    1 can I'm inplement drivers for unsupported, fresh hardware (like RAID controller, or network adapter) to Acronis bootable cd? it's more comfortable to do it myself, than ask your support to add needed driver to the new build.
    2 bootable part works on linux?
    3 based on which one?
    4 offtopic: how to remove a password from *.tib? password is not forgoten, but I'm dont want to waste my time by restoring/backuping the image to remove the password from it.

    Only if you use a BartPE CD. You can't add drivers to the Linux-based version.

    The Full Mode version runs on Linux. The Safe Mode version is DOS-based.

    I think it's a BusyBox distro. Not sure what the kernel version is.

    I don't know if this can be done. You might try searching for it, but I don't remember reading anything about removing a password.

    BusyBox is just a package of console utilities and runs on many, many Linux distros. I even have it on my Tivo.

    I thought that I read an Acronis reply before that stated that they are using a Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

    If you want to find out the kernel version, start up from the recovery media. When the menu screen has loaded, press F11 and remove the word "quiet" from the kernel argument dialog box. Press OK and then choose the full version of TI and let it start to boot. You'll see all kinds of startup messages scrolling up the screen as Linux boots. When it finishes booting, you'll be at a busybox shell prompt. Do the following:
    cd proc
    cat version
    On my TI10 build 4942 the kernel version is displayed as 2.4.34-acronis#1 SMP

    To complete booting and enter TI full version, type "exit".
