It's been nearly 2 years since I have created a BartPE boot disk. Back then I found creating one taxing, to say the least. But after reading several threads here I decided to give it another go. I successfully created a BartPE disk with the TrueImage plugin but experienced a couple of issues which I'm sure someone here can help me resolve: When I access TrueImage from within BartPE and go through the "Restore" feature, my external USB drive isn't recognized, even when it on before rebooting. Is it necessary to have the drive running during the initial creation of BartPE? When I created BartPE, the external USB drive was not running. If I switch my external drive to connect via eSata and boot with BartPE, TrueImage does recognize the drive and I can see my backup images. However, selecting any of them results in a "Corrupt image" error. The backup images are NOT corrupt as I have validated them and even used them to do a restore earlier. So, I would appreciate some help in regard to these two issues. THANKS!
