TI 9 build 3633, in Windows XP SP2. I moved my two internal SATA drives from my Gigabyte GA-7N400S-L motherboard to a SIIG HD Controller SA0012-S1 PCI today, to try to resolve problems I've been having recognizing an external SATA drive. Although I can boot to Windows, and run TI full version and Disk Director 10 from BOOT mode, neither program can recognize my SATA hard drives from the Linux Kernal Boot Recovery Mode. "E000101F4 TI has not found any hard drives" I've tried the F11 at boot up to enter the "quiet acpi=off no apic" command. Still no hard drives found. The SIIG SATA Controller did a fine job of recognizing my Samsung 250 GB SATA hard drives, and I thought that I might do better running them from the SIIG card, and using the mobo SATA ports to run my Plextor DVD+R and external SATA HD. Trying to configure the SATA external earlier, via the SIIG card would result in Windows bogging down, 100% CPU useage, no USB mouse, and other challenges. TI helped me restore several times, but each new effort to run the external SATA HD failed. (Also a Samsung 250 GB, which runs fine under USB II). I've run MemTest, overnight, and have no apparent memory issues. Seems to be the TI Linux mode drivers, or lack thereof. Would uninstalling all Acronis products and re-installing them help get the correct system drivers to work in the Boot mode of the programs? If so, can I do the automatic un-install via Add/Remove Programs, or must I also delete Registry Keys, set permissions, and so on? I also tried re-activating the Recovery Manager, which was suggested in another thread, but, no still have had no luck loading new Linux boot drivers, so no hard drive are detected by TI or DD. The SIIG SATA card runs the SATA hard drives in XP fine, they show up as SCSI 0 and 1 in Device Manager. Though I've been through a lot trying to get Acronis to work smoothly on my system, I'm still pleased to have gone with Acronis, and these forums are a major reason. I also think that if the Linux mode can work as it did until I moved the HD's to the controller SATA ports today, it's a great feature. I would prefer that there were options to rewrite the proper drivers and system settings from within an Acronis program [and, this added later, Linux drivers available to recognize hard drives running from controller cards]. I'd like to keep my backup protection running, and current, while I sort out hardware issues. With many mobos only supporting 2 SATA drives, won't many choose to add SATA drives for backups, and need to use controller cards to do so? I've also had problems writing Image files to the same external drive via USB II, and have only had success doing so in TI Boot mode. Images written from TI in WinXP wouldn't validate, but thanks to the Linux Boot mode USB drivers, (or better error-checking?), Images wrote, validated and restored fine from TI Boot Mode. Thought I was in the clear, until today, when Boot Mode became the weaker link in the chain. I'm still trying to get all 3 drives running in SATA, which I hope will make backups reliable. I suppose that, since I can make backups in Windows, I could swap the drives back to the MOBO SATA ports if I had a system crash, and restore from there. But, other threads seem to indicate that even that could be problematic, as restoring to new locations can present problems. I have had MBR errors during these experiments, and some indication that changing configurations to restore might not work smoothly. Thanks.
