I have True Image 8. When I am trying to restore from a USB 2.0 hard drive, it literally takes about five hours! It is about 29GB of data, so that might take a bit of time. But five hours is ridiculous. I have tried it with another laptop, and, with the same hard drive and image, it would take maybe forty minutes or so. The issue is that this laptop is fairly new. I have to do the acpi=off noapic startup to get it to recognize my USB hard drive, and I still do not get network access. The laptop is a Fujitsu A3040. The chipset is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. It has a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port. Does anyone have experience with this type of system with TI9 and have it work faster?
