Bootable Media: Type

On the Type page of the wizard, choose one of the following options:

  • Create bootable flash drive: Select this option to create bootable media to use in the bare metal recovery process. After choosing this option, click Next to proceed to the Destination page.

  • Get ISO (download to browser): Select this option to download an .iso file that can be used to create bootable media. Choose this option if you wish to create bootable media using a different program. After choosing this option, click Next to proceed to the Finish page.

  • You can also download the NAKIVO Backup & Replication BMR appliance.iso by using the direct link and make it to a bootable media (flash/CD/DVD) using any third-party tool. Then insert it into physical machine to boot it from flash/CD/DVD.


    • Before you can boot the target VM from the .iso file that was downloaded via the direct link and prepared manually, you need to do the following:

      1. Click the Bare Metal Recovery appliance shortcut on the desktop to open the browser.

      2. The browser starts with multiple 1s. Replace the 1s with the actual Director IP and Port data to launch the Bare Metal Recovery Wizard.

    • The shortcut of the .iso file patched via NAKIVO Backup & Replication already contains all the necessary data and requires no additional adjustments.
