    Hi all!

    I have tried several Intel on-board RAID controllers with the TI 11 Boot CD and they don't work. Other postings are also reporting that RAID controllers don't work.

    Now I want to ask the opposite question: Is there anyone out there who has a RAID controller that works with the TI 11 Boot CD? If so, please let us know.

    Regards,
    Anguel

    True Image 11 CD boot seems to work OK with my VIA 6420 RAID chip on Asus motherboard. I have not restored, but it was able to backup.

    I have a P5N-E SLI and True Image 11 Home works perfect with it.
    I am able to backup and restore with the restore cd as well as
    from the software running in the os.


    I am running:

    P5N-E SLI
    Windows XP PRO sp2
    3GB Ram
    2 - Western Digital Raptor 150GB in RAID-0

    I have the operating system running on the Raid-0.
    Also the Try&Decide feature works perfectly
    though I am not using the secure zone to store data. Pointless on a Raid 0.

    I have both a second internal for storage and work files as well as an
    external backup drive via USB.

    TI-11 Home works great for me. Though as I have been alerted to in another
    thread here in the forums. My mobo is running an Nvidia Raid and NOT Intel.

    I am also using the 8027 build of TI 11.


    Hope that helps.

    I have not run extensive tests, but the Full mode version of TI 11 (build 8,027) seems to work fine with my MSI P6N SLI-FI board. It sees the RAID drive and validates okay.

    North Bridge chipset: nVidia nForce 650i SLI (C55)
    South Bridge chipset: nVidia nForce 430i (MCP51) -- SATA/IDE/RAID controller

    The picture that is coming out is that ATI 11 works with nvidia southbridge RAIDs but not the Intel (although prior versions fo ATI worked fine with Intel southbridge chips. It seems the linux drivers can't understand the disk structure if the Intel RAID is used.

    I have used my TI-11 bootable Rescue Media to clone my RAID 1 array (PCI Promise controller) to a single USB external drive. Mission completed with no problem.

    Do you know whose chip it uses for "southbridge" functions?

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Currently there is a driver problem with some RAID controllers in Acronis Bootable Rescue Media (full version). Please notice that our Development Team is aware of the problem and is working on solving it. Most likely, the problem will be solved in the future builds of Acronis True Image. We are sorry, but the exact time-frame isn't decided yet.

    As of now, if you encounter the problem with Acronis Bootable Rescue Media (full version) not recognising your RAID controller, please submit a request for technical support to receive a custom built Acronis Bootable Rescue Media iso image that would work with your controller. Please collect and include into your request the following information needed to buid the custom media iso image:

    Please create Acronis Report, Windows system information and Linux system information (sysinfo.txt) as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Please also collect the exact vendor and device names of the controller in question.

    Thank you.
