I am using a trial version of TI 2009 (Build 9,770) which I have loaded on an HP 6715s laptop and created a bootable rescue CD. If I boot off this CD, it displays "Starting Acronic Loader" then the Acronis True Image Home 2009title screen shows. I can momentarily move then mouse but then the laptop freezes. I have also created a bootable USB Pen, same result. I have upgraded to the latest BIOS. I have also tried the F11 start and added the quiet acpi=off noapic option, disable USB legacy in BIOS, change HDD Translation to Bit **** & LBA Assisted etc. It still hangs on the title screen (see attached picture) and I have to press and hold the power button to switch off. I have tried the same boot disk on a Dell PC - works no problem.
