Have TrueImageWorkstation9.1 I currently save images for tightly controlled build and test PCs in tib format to an image file server, to restore I use an Acronis boot CD and pull the image over the network - all works very well. We DO NOT use Acronis from within Windows - this would be considered contamination of our test environment. However, what I would like to do is one or both of the following. 1) Boot from the Acronis boot CD, create an image file either ISO or tib and burn it directly to DVD - CD is not no good, to small, then either use the Acronis boot CD in conjunction with the image DVD for a restore - is this possible? 2) Or, boot from the Acronis boot CD, created an image file on the file server, then take that image file and burn it in a separate application to DVD, and then use that to restore in conjunction with an Acronis boot CD. I've tried booting from the an Acronis boot CD, then inserting the image file (tib file) but it does not give the option to mount the DVDROM drive, just the usual C drive, FTP server etc - this is witha Dell Inspiron 6400 Duo notebook. Looked into it a bit further, I'm trying this out on a Dell Inspiron6400 and at no point does Acronis pick any optical drives. I've tried the Acronis boot disk on another desktop PC and it does show up the DVDRW drive, but as a CDRW drive, I've read this a know feature and down to Microsoft. Any way, I still cannot burn to DVD even on this PC, first error it displays is I0064003, and if I try again, E00040003. So can ATI burn natively to DVD? I.E. from boot - not from with Windows. I've probably got 2 issues here, the Dell Inspiron and the DVD burning. Any help appreciated as I'm waiting to buy more copies for our business but his is holding it up at the moment.
