    We use Acronis in our office and have run into a weird problem. I am changing out machines so I created a Acronis emergency boot disk on my laptop. I did this 3 times and it absolutely refuses to boot on a new Dell Optiplex GX280. My tech guy thinks it has to do with the SATA drives because he claims to have had weird issues with GHOST also. I was forced to use the Floppy Boot. AFter loading all my new software on this machine I attempted to back it up and it said it would require 3 CD's. After 2 CD's it said it was completed. When I tried to restore the Image it said I needed to put the last volume disk in so I put disk #2. Acronis still says its not the last volume or my image is corupt. I have doen this 2 times now. Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    You must verify your bootable CD and the Image CD's first. Make sure you create images to the size that is specified in user guide. Use nero IN CD / DVD
    incd formatt first and write your images to the CD / DVD.
    ( use rewritable discs ). It is better create small image in your hard drive and
    write to CD / DVD's this way it faster.

    If you have a network store it your network drive.

    Good Luck
