    I work at a computer company and we use acronis true image to restore image files onto clients computers that use linux. Anyways this one computer i'm booting it up and when it gets to the black "please wait while acronis loads screen" right before it would normally go to the main acronis menu it says "hda: drive not ready for command". Now its not the cd and its not the cd drive i'm using to load it on (external cd drive) because i've switched multiple discs to check if it was a bad disc and i even loaded another computer using the same external CD drive to check and that one worked fine so its something with the computer but I don't know what is bad about it... Anyone got any ideas? HD(s) are bad?

    I had the same issue - it was resolved by making a SAFE level CD, rather than "full". Try that ?
