I have True Image 9.0 home, and what I want to do is make a bootable recovery disk with my backup image on the dvd. I was able to do this using CDshell, and the disc works perfectly when I boot it on my desktop. The problem is when I use it on my laptop (Dell Inspiron e1505/6400) the disc will boot but when I get to the acronis app, the DVD drive is unavailable. So I can't search for an image on it. Weird, since I already booted from the drive. Like I said, it works on my desktop. I think the problem might have something to do with the way my laptop starts the drive. I don't know. All I know is that the desktop DVD drive works fine. Is there some f11 command I can use to make the dvd drive accessible? The laptop DVD drive by the way is a Samsung TS-L462 combo-drive.
