It can't be any simpler to create a Bart PE with the Acronis plugin. However I must be pretty ignorant because I'm having trouble. CD creation is a snap. In the Bart environment I can back up any of my 3 drives to an external USB 2.0 drive. When I wish to restore an image from my USB 2.0 drive and go through the menu choices on the TI menus, TI closes right after I click "delete partition..." and I'm left at the Bart PE desktop. What could I be missing? It's gotta be something very basic but I'm still stumped after 2 creations of the Bart PE/Acronis 9 plug in CD. (I'm trying to restore drive C and yes, I have 2 copies of it just in case I can't restore from my external drive).
