I just upgraded from 7.0 to 8.0 and tried the new boot disk. I discovered that ATI did not recognize the ALPS pointing device (touchpad/eraser) common on Toshiba and other laptops, so was unusable without using a USB mouse instead. I checked both 8.0.771 and 7.0.634 with the same results, so it is not a new problem-I must have been using the mouse last time I restored, or done it from Windows XP. Since this is a very common device, is there a way of getting ATI to recognize the ALPS from the boot disk and when booting from Windows to restore the primary partition? Or does Acronis need yet another device upgrade? Thanks; Ed.
