I just purchased TI 9 on a CD. I have Win 98SE. I made a full image backup to a Iomega 80GB USB external HD. Verify image was turned on. Everything appeared to work well. I made the 8 floppy disks to boot from. I put in a new HD, fdisked, and formatted it. Plugged in the USB drive and then booted from the floppy disks. The "restore from" window does not show the USB drive, so I can't restore. All of the drives in the computer are shown. I can install windows on the new HD, so I know it's OK.
