    Doh! :p

    I just booted up my brand new (never even booted up before this attempt) Mac Book Pro to the CD that I just burned from the ISO on the Paragon website this morning, and when I tried to run the backup tool, I got this error message...

    Error
    No HDD Installed. Program will be terminated.


    Any idea what's up with that?

    Don't mean to pester, but does anyone have any ideas here?

    I had the same issue. No visible workaround, except find another product.

    I'm getting the same exact error with CampTune. Mac Mini, 10.6, Windows 7 x64. A thread from almost a year ago doesn't make this look promising to me...

    OCR14a, MerleOne
    "No HDD installed' error means that Linux-based environment of Rescue Kit doesn't have appropriate drivers for your HDD controller.

    You can contact Paragon Support team. They can provide you new WinPE-based CampTune 9 or CampTune 8, but on WinPE, which has option to load drivers.

    Thanks, I guessed so, but since this Recovery kit is not user changeable, I have to look for something else, unless Paragon fixes it.

    Paragon support supplied CampTune 9. Things seemed to be working. The Mac partition was decreased by the amount I set, but when it came to the Windows 7 x64 partition it failed with an operation error due to cross-linked files.

    Has anyone tried iPartition? (with Windows 7 x64) The demo is for UI only and the price is $45.
