    I just built a Core 2 Duo system with the Intel 965 chipset. It's a Biostar TForce 965PT board. Anyhow, I've been using Acronis TI 8 on my AMD rig for over a year now with great success. However, with this new build, the bootable Acronis load doesn't detect any hard disks! I have a single SATA 3 GB/s hard drive on on the SATA channels. Windows boots up just fine from this HDD, so I'm assuming this is a recognition problem on Acronis' end. My bootable CD has Acronis TI build 937 on it. I thought this would be recent enough to have the necessary SATA drivers on it, but maybe not?

    The 965 chipset boards are currently not supported by either TI 9 or TI 10 "full" mode at this time. Acronis support has stated that a future update will support the 965 chipset.

    Have you tried using the "safe" mode of TI? It works fine on my 965 board.

    You could also try the F11 options in the sticky thread. It works for some computers.

    You may want to consider making a BartPE boot cd. This will allow TI to use the windows drivers which generally perform faster than the linux counterparts.

    My new Dell Inspiron 1501 has the same problem. Safe mode works, but I get no network or DVD drive support with it...

    That's a problem, since I have to be able to back up over a network, and either restore over the network or from DVD. Is there any way BartPE could get around this problem? I would assume that it needs the CD drive for itself and I'm not sure if my Dell's network card would work with it...
