Hi Fun Seekers, "I made a bootable cd and placed Truimage and Disk Director on it in both versions(full and safe). Of the four options, both in Trueimage work. Only the safe mode in Disk Director works. When I select the full version of Disk Director, I get an error message containing a bunch of memory locations, etc and kernel panic: attempted to kill the idle task! I idle task - not syncing. The system then hangs, have to do a power reset." I have included in this posting a post from rogerq from 10/06 since I had the same problem. I thought I would wait until the new version of DD10 was released to see if the problem was fixed. I made a bootable CD from TI 10.4942 and DD10.2160 and have the same problem. I'm fairly sure that the problem is being caused by a PCI based SATA controller that TI can deal with but DD can't. Don't they use the same cadre of Linux drivers?
