    I have always been an acronis product fan. I do have some beefs with the tech support, but all in all it has been a great product. I have been using it for years. I have the latest release of TI for echo windows server. Works well, and is reliable. However, it is terribly slow. Yes, I know the BartPE is supposed to fix this, and it does help, but not much.

    In contrast, I can take the standard paragon boot CD (comparable to the Acronis boot CD), and literally make a 100GB image in 15 minutes. Acronis, not even close. Acronis is in the hours. This is going to the same USB drive locally connected, no encryption, and standard compression.

    After this support renewal is up, I think I am leaving, unless anyone has any tricks or patches or something. With BartPE, I downloaded and use all the latest drivers from HP for their Proliant servers, so I know the drivers are good. (plus the boot cd works well, just slow)

    anybody have a solution?

    Paragon has its share of problems similar to ATI's, in particular probs working on some hardware platforms, but not necessarily the same ones that ATI has probs with. Both of these progs use linux on the bootCD and that's the root of the hardware prob.

    If you want to avoid these hardware-driver compatibility problems, then another one to consider is Shadowprotect because SP uses VistaPE on ots bootCD, and you can add drivers onthe fly -- so if the prog works under windows, then the BootCD will work too. Of course, because they have to license Vista, SP costs more.

    Hello triathlon4life,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    Are you speaking about the Acronis Bootable Rescue Media performance? If this is true, please log in to your account and download an ISO file based on ISOLINUX (your license should be registered) and create another Acronis Bootable Rescue Media.

    You can find more information on how to burn an ISO image to a CD here and here

    I can suggest you to try the first option (the default parameter) available at the CD startup and the third one when the program boots into Acronis True Image program directly with the acpi=off noapic parameters.

    Thank you.
