I have a DELL Latitude D620 and want to create a harddisk image for backup purposes. I have downloaded the Acronis True Image 9.0 Home Trial Version build 3567. After creating the Acronis TI Boot CD(using a CD-RW) I reboot the system using this CD. The CD bootup the system and I chooses the FULL version to start TI. PROBLEM: When I try to do a Backup/Restore, the DVD drive( D: ) is not detected. Only my HDD( C: ) and the "Computer Near Me" are available. If I were to create images into DVD-/+R(W), How to restore the images using this method? The funny thing is that when I boot up my Desktop PC with this boot CD, all the drives available in the PC are shown. I am using WinXP Home for my D620 notebook and WinXP Pro for my Desktop PC. I've tried using the linux command "quiet apci=off noapic" before booting up the ATI (FULL) version. But ( D: ) is still not available. I've remove the "quiet" command and these are the last few lines that are printed on the screen. ----- start of print out ---- $ /bin/insmod/sunrpc sunrpc.o: no module by that name found $ /bin/insmod snapapi Using /lib/modules/snapapi.o Warning: loading snapapi will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - Proprietary See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules. snapapi_init: Snapapi(v.0.7.0) init OK.
