I DL'd & installed TI8, build 859 only yesterday. I've already created one image, which I've deleted b/c I'm still unsure whether I want to use Secure Zone (I've seen threads on other forums suggesting SZ shouldn't be utilized--causes problems). Anyway, I still went through the process of setting up SZ, just to see what it would look like. In the "Manage Secure Zone" wizard, I selected my external HD (connected via firwire--the same drive upon which I would store my image(s)); I select a partition on my external HD (I created especially for storing images; I select a SZ size; I select option to "Activate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager." When I try to continue, up pops a error box saying: "The hard disk you have selected is not available when booting your PC and you will be able to restore images from Acronis Secure Zone located on this drive only from Windows." --First of all, WTF What good is storing a backup image on an external HD if I can't use the same drive to restore from? Makes ZERO sense to me. --If I choose to NOT use SZ, meaning I simply create images in a "regular" partition on my external HD, would that matter?
