I resently purchased TI 9.0 and downloaded the most recent 3677 build. I then created the TI Rescue boot disk. I had an experience that others may be having as well and because I found a solution, I wanted to write. I initially burned the rescue boot program to a DVD+R disk. I found that when I booted with this disk in my main PC that has the DVD burner, the TI Splash screen (the screen I saw right after selecting the Full Version) stayed on the screen for about 3 minutes. However, booting with this disk in my secondary PC (almost the same as the main PC except this one has a drive in it that has a read-only DVD and CD RW), the splash screen only stayed on the screen for 1 minute. What I did was to create a new TI Rescue boot disk, but this time I burned it to a CD-RW disk. When I boot with the CD-RW boot disk in either PC, the splash screen is on the screen for only 1 minute. I do not know why the DVD TI Rescue disk took 2 minutes longer to boot in my main PC. Maybe all I had was a bad burn to the DVD, but I wanted to share this with the group, just in case anyone else is having the same expereince.
