System: WinXP Home SP2 with external maxtor 5000xt drive via firewire When I run TI7 from within Windows, I am able to recognize and back up to my external drive. When I boot from the Recovery disk, the external drive isn't recognized, so I am unable to restore from the backup. Is this a general problem with TI7 not recognizing external drives, a problem with Firewire, or something else? And how do I fix this problem? Thanks for your help.
