HI, Yesterday i tried to restore an image from above Laptop(latest Bios). Acronis Treuimage version 7 build 638 is installed. 1) I tried to start the restore process from windows so that system boots and tries to start from the linux kernel. Acronis Loading and then black screen forever 2) Started from the version bootdisk same result 3) used a version 9 bootdisk(latest build) let me choose fullversion , then a smaller version without pcmcia+ usb drivers etc, and start windows so i choosed full: Result: CRC Error(6) freeing initrd memory 9812k freed. Kernel panic: No init found Try passing initption to kernel Thats really tough cause its very important for our company to get this image restored.
