    1. Does TI running under Win XP includes to bootable CD any USB drivers of current system? That's making home made bootable CD more compatible to present hardware then the CD out of TI box.

    2. I don't know if the boot CD is Linux based or not but is there any suggestions how to change or add extra USB drivers to bootable CD for external HDD support? (As original TI boot CD USB drivers don't support all USB chips)

    3. Is there any info about TI "officially" supported USB chipsets?

    No, it is Linux based, so it can't use the Windows drivers.

    I haven't seen any way to do this.

    Not that I've ever seen.

    The alternative to the TI Recovery CD in cases where hardware isn't supported is the BartsPE Windows boot CD. You can find detailed instructions for creating such a disk on this forum under the sticky "Product Links, FAQs & Useful Forum Threads... ( in the second item under the "Wilders Security threads on common True Image problems and solutions" heading.

    Hello roberta,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that, as John mentioned, Acronis True Image Bootable Rescue CD is Linux based and uses Linux drivers for getting access to all hardware devices. It does not depend on the hardware configuration of the system it was created on.

    Please also note that the boxed version of Acronis True Image 10.0 Home might not contain the latest build of the program. Thus, we recommend you to create a new Acronis True Image Bootable Rescue Media using the latest build (4942) of Acronis True Image 10.0 Home, because each new build brings such improvements as better hardware support etc.

    The full variant of standalone version of Acronis True Image does provide support for USB devices, thus, if you experience problems with using USB device when booted your computer from Acronis True Image Bootable CD, please let us know the exact issue you experience and create Linux system information (sysinfo.txt) as it is described in Acronis Help Post. Then submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and information to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with a solution.

    Thank you.
