    What's the difference between the Safe and Full Modes when booting off the recovery disk? I didn't see this discussed in the Help.pdf.

    When you highlight each mode there is a description that appears ... tells you the difference.

    Full Mode boots into the Linux version of TI. It uses Linux drivers to access your hardware.

    Safe Mode boots into a DOS-based version of TI. It uses the computer's BIOS to access the hardware. This mode usually detects internal hard drives (hardware RAID too), but in most cases won't detect USB hard drives. On some newer computers it will detect USB hard drives. The access is dependent on the BIOS and is usually at USB 1 speeds.
