I'm using Acronis True Image 9, build 3677, on my Windows XP computer with an 80GB SATA drive (Western Digital WD800JS), and a 40GB ATA drive on which I keep my backups. Both drives work properly and have no errors. First of all, I can't use True Image when I boot from the CD into 'Full Mode'. When I begin setting the options to do a restore, the computer hangs as soon as it gets to 'Analyzing Partitions', and the drive light goes out. This even happens if I specify "acpi=off noapic" in the boot options. When I boot into 'Safe Mode', I can start a restore; but it takes seven hours to verify the 20GB backup image file, and then it takes nine more hours to restore this 20GB to my SATA drive. What gives? How do I get Full Mode to work, or at least how do I make Safe Mode work more quickly?
