    Hi,
    I have Windows XP and Ubuntu installed on my system.
    I burned clonezilla iso file on my pendrive with FAT32 format using tuxboot for backing up one of my drives.
    But on booting from the usb I can't select anything from keyboard, I can only see the main screen image.
    Surprisingly,on the grub menu however I can choose which OS to boot(if booted from the system)also Cd's are booting fine.
    Actually I don't want to burn CD's everytime because there is a new update very often and it would be a waste of money.
    Please Help.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you very much.

    P.S.sorry posted in windows 7 section in a hurry.
    Can this post be redirected?

    Nah dude...
    My pc is 6 years old and the writing process takes about 15 mins.also I can't do anything in that time frame.
    Whereas pen drives take hardly 5 mins for unpacking and burning.
    Anyways that's not the solution I was looking for.
    Can you help me solve the usb problem?

    I was suggesting to get a rewritable disc, if it works with CDs and you don't want to burn new ones for updates.

    Ya,I had edited my post without noticing your reply and my bandwidth dropped so it took some time to get it posted.
    This topic is still not closed guys.
    anyone here to help?
    Noticed a strange thing that my Time is changing automatically to 10 Feb 12:00AM on startup.
    Does this mean my BIOS is corrupted?I really have no idea that it could be such a thing that can get corrupted just assuming.
    Even after changing the date/time values from BIOS they get reseted to Feb 10.
    I think this could also be the reason behind usb-boot not working as it should.
    Any suggestions?

    The date/time change suggests your CMOS battery is dieing. Do you know where it is and how to change it?

    Yup.Should I buy a new one?
    When I Boot from the USB-ZIP the CMOS now gives a beep.
    and whenever it beeps everything in BIOS gets resetted.
    Getting a new battery will solve the usb booting problem too?
    or we have to do something else for it?

    Don't know if it will solve the booting problem, but you should put a new one in anyway.

    BTW... If you have changed any settings in your BIOS you should make a record of it so you can put it back the way you had it. Removing the battery and installing a new one will reset the BIOS to default settings.
