    Two questions:

    1. If I have an xp setup which has the AHCI drivers functioning (I assume this means that they are present in the i386 folder), will the creation of a BartPE cd automatically include these drivers and thus recognize the system disk properly?

    2. If the above is not true, can I still image the system normally and then when I want to restore do the following:
    a. set the disk mode to ide mode in the BIOS.
    b. boot from the BartPE cd and do the restore.
    c.upon the next reboot, go into the BIOS and reset the mode to AHCI.

    Thanks,
    Harvey

    Hello Harvey,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    If you are able to install Windows XP to the current system with AHCI mode been enabled, I suppose that you can create a usable BartPE disk. To be sure you should create the disk and try it. You can find the step-by-step guide Working with Acronis True Image Plug-In for BartPE

    This workaround can't be applied, the system will be non-functional.

    Thank you.

    Well, I tried it and the process failed - the BartPE cd blue screened trying to get into windows. This is all academic at this point since my system has an SSD and ATI does not support this type of drive.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond,
    Harvey

    Hello Harvey,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    Are you able to install Windows XP to your SSD hard drive using the standard Windows installation CD?

    Thank you.
