    I have just purchased ATI 8 and am having trouble checking the boot disk operation. The safe mode is the only mode that works and unfortunately when go to the restore mode I do not see the USB hard disk I used to make a backup for the whole system. I assume I need the non-safe mode disks but when I use the first disk I get a message from the BOIS that a non-system disk is present and press any key. This, of couse is repeated and I never can get the boot disk to work.

    I am using XP sevice pack 2 home edition on a regular desk model computer.

    Is there a fix for this problem?

    Never mind,. I have given up on the floppy disks and created a cdrom disk for booting the computer. It apparently works ok in the non-safe mode.

    Yes, and it'll be a whole lot quicker than booting from all those floppies!!

    Hello,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/).

    If Acronis rescue CD (full version) doesn't work on your system please contact support@acronis.com. There is a standard way to diagnose this problem.

    Please note that the safe version of rescue media uses BIOS in order to operate with hardware devices. So it doesn't detect CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs, USB and FireWire drives, all the other devices that aren't recognized by BIOS.

    Thank you.
