    The inevitable hard drive crashed. Good thing I got an image and 2 incremental images on my external 2.5" usb drive. I also got a recovery CD done during the initial install of TI. I'm not sweating.
    However, I got my replacement hard drive installed with the external usb connected and am now booting from the TI recovery CD but it gets stuck after recognizing my network card. Now I'm sweating. I've also, from another pc, downloaded a trial version of TI with latest build and created a recovery CD. I used both of the recovery CD with the same result. I emailed support but have not answers yet. Help!

    As a follow-up:

    I disabled the built-in network card through the bios. I let the recovery CD boot and it went further but stopped after recognizing my usb drive. It is now reporting a timeout (USB device not accepting new address 2 & 3 (error=110)).

    This is happening on my Gateway M275 convertible tablet notebook.

    I also tried booting without the usb hard drive connected and it now is stopping after detecting the built-in firewire.

    I have put a lot of trust in TI to image my drive but so far the experience has been negative when it comes time to recovering. And technical support is non-existent.

    Final Update:
    I gave up on the recovery CD and waiting for an answer from Acronis Tech Support. I went to plan B. On another PC, with a trial version of TI, I attached my brand new hd in a borrowed external USB enclosure and also my imaged drive through my own external USB enclosure. I then ran the restore image and bam! I writing this one now from my new hard drive.
    So, overall, the drive imaging was good but the recovery was bad. I wasted practically a whole day on something that should have saved me time. I paid for a feature that did not work.
