This is something that i dont understand: i download XBoot, make USB Bootable with some isos, tested in 3 system and works perfect, The USB Bootable works fine and all ISOs are accesible, but with the Asus M4A89GTD PRO mobo i can't load any ISO, all iso go blanck or stop loading the basic menu.

The XBoot USB Bootable disk works perfect in 3 system, ¿whats the posible reason that do no load any iso in this mobo?

you have to understand how Xboot is nothing but a (IMHO half@ssed) .Net based wraparound - seemingly abandoned - around a few "base" booting tools.

If you prefer it is a simplified GUI wizard for a number of tools that may contain (in the versions that come with Xboot) bugs, incompatibilities and what not.

It is likely that the latest version of the same base tool has had the bug or incompatibility fixed (or maybe not).
First thing you should do would be to check the version of Syslinux and/or grub4dos that you have on the stick, and update it.

To do so, you will have to forget the nice looking interface and learn a bit about the used tools and how to configure/troubleshoot them "directly", they are the ones that "do all the work" anyway.

Try partitioning the drive first using RMPrepUSB and set the 'Boot as HDD (2PTNS)' option - then use XBOOT to install the iso's etc.
