    I want buy ADDS 10 to finish re-partition of my hard-disk, however, I found the software can only support SP2 (it's your webpage: http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/diskdirector/requirements.html), as my OS is Windows XP SP3.

    I checked this with so many people, someone said yes, in the meantime, others say no (even by the engineer in ACRONIS Shanghai branch office).

    It's really confused me! I must got the official answer from you, before I place order of ADDS.

    Your official answer (from HQ) will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks for the alternative solution. On many computers disk director 10 simply will not partition a drive for
    some unexplainable reason. :thumb:

    Acronis hasn't kept their Linux drivers up to date. PartedMagic has done a better job of this. However, there are no known incompatibilities with DD 10 and XP SP3 that I'm aware of. You are probably running into a driver issue especially if you have new hardware (< 2 yrs old); SATA chipset drivers especially. You can also work around this by using DD from the recovery CD by starting in safe mode.
