    I have a company that edits programmes for broadcast. I used to use Aconis to resore these machines when they died as all windows instalations do.
    But I have been unable to use any images that I know used to work .
    All I get now is the recovery disk just sitting there doing nothing.
    I think this because I have to use Sata disk machines . None of the Acroins products work.
    Sadley this is the parting of the ways having just spent 2 days trying to fix a machine with a known working image no joy.
    Even made a Bart PE disk, all Acronis does is crash or say the image is not valid well having used it before with great succes on non sata machines this has become a big joke.
    Does anything work on sata machines

    Safe mode versions of disk director allow sata recognition. May help with true image seeing sata drives...

    TI9 and later, and maybe before, work with SATA HD machines. However, if the SATA is being provided by a PCI add-on card there might be a driver issue with the TI Linux CD. But with no info on version, build, what exactly is happening, we can't make any suggestions.

    You need to get a sata hard drive usb enclosure, stick the sata drive you want to restore in the enclosure. Next just restore the image you want onto the usb enclosure. This will work everytime and save you hours of trying to find the correct drivers/bartpe etc to work.

    The only hard part is to open the computer case and swap out drives but that shouldn't take more than 30 minutes. If you have a ide/sata usb bridge adapter you don't even need to remove drives.

    The hardware problems are the easiest to fix. There are many ways around these problems.

    More than likely you have a "exotic" type of motherboard that true image isn't familiar with. But theirs different ways around everything. Other imaging software will probably also have problems with that motherboard also.

    ...or, you can get an inexpensive usb to sata/ide cable with power supply. They are so much cheaper than a whole enclosure.
