    Hello, we recently bought Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Windows Servers and we are trying to imaging an Dell PE 2800 with an Raid 5 and an Raid 1 Configuration.

    We want to do it with the bootable rescue Media. Unfortuenally Acronis is not able to see all the drives. We can mark the Raid 5 drive/partition but none of the dynamic disks .... as soon as we do it without the bootdisk Acronis sees the dynamic disks - no problem.

    Please advise! Thanks, Armin
