Didn't you make the TI 9 image from the TI 9 Recovery CD? That will work as will restoring the image from the TI 9 Recovery CD. Installing TI 9 under Windows Vista is not likely to produce anything good, and it may not even be possible to uninstall it. Since many of us have installed TI 10 on Vista systems and made backups that verify both in Windows Vista and from the TI 10 Recovery CD, there is something about your system that TI 10 doesn't like. Since you get the same corrupt images in both Windows Vista and Linux with TI 10, it has to be something basic to the program separate from the operating system or other software. Memory is one such possibility. Other hardware components are another. For a real fluke, try making a new image and splitting the image at 1000 MB. That will make a lot of files, but sometimes in the past this allowed images to be verified. It may sound silly, but it's really worth a try. Although you have run Memtest, it normally takes 24 hours to thoroughtly test a machine with enough RAM to run Vista, so I'd suggest you do that when you can give up your system for a day. Beyond that, I think you are stuck with making images with your TI 9 CD and waiting for a new build of TI 10. What a bummer.
