   9. Type active to mark the partition as active:
  10. Type format fs=fat32 to format the disk in FAT32 (otherwise the drive will not be bootable):
  11. Type assign to assign a drive letter:
  12. Type exit to exit Windows DiskPart utility:
  13. Run your Acronis product;
  14. Pick Tools -> Create Bootable Rescue Media;
  15. Follow all steps of the wizard and select your USB flash drive as media.
