  1. Ramakanth,

    I bought a Toshiba NB500 (Netbook) 2 weeks ago. Needless to say it doesn’t have an optical drive. I use Macrium Reflect free edition and it doesn’t have an option to create a bootable USB stick. I managed to create a Macrium Reflect bootable USB stick using an unofficial method mentioned somewhere else which gloriously failed to boot the Netbook into rescue mode.

    Googled for alternatives but couldn’t find a suitable replacement. I am going to try this one and will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the intro.

      1. Ramakanth,

        It works… I could boot my netbook into recovery mode using the USB stick I created using the software. The recovery mode takes about 10 seconds to load the user interface, but I can live with it.

    1. There’s a URL in that dialog box… Follow that URL and you will be taken to a web page where you are asked to enter some details including your email address. The product key will be emailed to you once you submit these information.
