Why the Make bootable disk checkbox is disabled?

Last Update date : 2015.02.27




The "make bootable disk" checkbox is not enabled when connecting USB pendrive on Recovery program.



Recovery program will make 1GB hidden bootable partition on external disk, but USB pendrive doesn't support creating partition.



It is recommend to use external HDD or SSD for enabling this checkbox on Recovery for making bootable disk.
