    Trying to use DD 10 (CD boot) on a new AMD based machine. Using the 780G/SB700 chips. The disk is a SATA configured in AHCI mode.
    I've tried all the various disk modes but still the program can't find the disk.:mad:
    I can see the disk booting Ubuntu 8.10 so I know Linux drivers are available.
    Does anyone know if I can run DD from a "Live" Linux boot? Does Acronis plan an update to the bootable media in the older products?
    Thanks

    Have you tried the Safe Mode version of DD?

    Safe mode also fails- In fact all I get is an error screen ( E00101F4) and the
    system then resets.

    This is aparently an issue with many newer ( AHCI based SATA ) systems and
    I don't think there is a simple answer.

    PS- the latest update of Acronis True Image home 10 ( build 4292) also fails to "see" the drive systems in any mode.
