I read some where that some one had an image (Windows XP Professional SP2) from Acronis True Image Workstation 9.1.3718 stored on an external usb 2.0 hard drive and tried putting the image on a computer with different hardware, but the usb adpater on the older computer was usb 1.1. Also, they said there build was Acronis True Image Workstation 9.1.3718 but the build they were using for Acronis Universal Restore Workstation plug in was 9.1.3534. When they tried restoring the image off the external usb 2.0 external hard drive on to the older computer (usb 1.1) with different hardware, they said it was going to take around a day to restore. What was more likely the cause for the slow restore, the fact that the old computer had a usb 1.1 adapter and not a usb 2.0 adapter or the fact that the Acronis True Image Workstation 9.1.3718 and the Acronis Universal Restore Workstation 9.1.3534 didn't match in the build version? I also read that some people made a BartPE Boot CD with the Acronis plugin with Universal restore which suppose to work. Is it better to use BartPE Boot CD or www.reatogo.de (which uses BartPe) with the Acronis Universal Restore feature? I also read that using this boot cd restore is much faster. As you can tell from my post my biggest decision in purchasing imaging software is one that will allow me to restore an image to computers with different hardware (I have way too many windows xp professional SP2 images) and that it doesn't take a day to restore as I'm hearing reports that Acronis Universal Restore plug in is taking that long to restore an image to computers with different hardware. Thanks for your help!
