It took some tinkering and reading in here to figure out how to make a bootable rescue disk. It turns out the drag-and-drop feature of Roxio was the culprit. I had to turn it off to create the rescue disk. However, it must be turned on again to burn images to cd/dvd. For whatever reason, I've gotten two failed image creations. I'm trying to backup my C: drive and the burn seems to go smoothly until it's about 80% done, and then it quits and gives me an error message about bad media. WTF? How can I get a reliable burn of my imaged drive? Is this software really that buggy? I'm using True Image 8.0 by the way.
