    Hi: I use Acronis V10.0 build 4871. I have one problem.
    The boot Acronis Emergency CD discs I make boot fine to the so called "Safe" mode, but will not boot to the "Full" mode.

    My computer has only SATA hard drives.

    I have another older computer that can boot the CD to either mode of operation. The only computer I need Acronis on is the one that won't boot both modes. Acronis isn't even loaded on the old computer.

    I'd love to be able to boot the SATA computer to the CD's "full" mode. This (I think) would allow me to use the Boot CD Full mode to restore from external Firewire based PATA drives. The "safe" mode doesn't allow this.

    Is there a newer or better Boot-CD available that would help me?

    EDIT: PS, I run XP SP3 Pro.

    Thanks,

    Fungus

    For the Full Mode version from the CD, have you tried the quiet acpi=off noapic option detailed in Section II of the PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU POST thread?

    You could try also updating to the latest build of TI 10 (4,942) or creating a TI 2009 trial CD and seeing if it will correctly recognize your computer's hardware.

    Otherwise, you'll need to contact Acronis Support and see if they can give you a custom build that includes the drivers you need or create a BartPE or WinPE-based CD.

    OK, thanks for the suggestions.

    The "quiet acpi" trick didn't help me.

    I then downloaded TI2009 for the 15 day free use testing. I then installed it and created an emergency boot CD. I did this on old computer #2, didn't want to mess up my good computer that runs TI v10.

    Guess what? The V2009 CD does allow me to boot my SATA main computer in "full" mode, the "safe" choice was missing.

    Even better, the CD allowed me to see my external Firewire drive, and even allowed me to choose a folder and restore it to my main C: drive.

    This is how it should work. Yay!

    The SafeMedia (Safe Mode) version is only available for download after you buy the program.

    I'm glad the Full Mode version worked for you.
