    I've just purchased TI8 and created a boot CD to allow me to image a few of my Linux (FC3) boxes.
    I'm just imaging the first boot partition (~6GB, 56% used, Ext3), hda1, and want to use that image to build other identical systems. The image is sent to a Samba shared drive and appears to be created correctly (~1.3GB in size).
    However when I try to restore the image to a new HD formatted the same as the original HD I always get a "Missing Operating System" error on boot - despite TI giving the impression that all is well.
    If I boot from the Linux rescue CD it can't find the restored OS either so it's not just the boot loader that's missing.
    Any ideas?

    Hi Steve - I am bit rusty when it comes to Linux & Acronis. Acronis have an utility (AcronisReport.exe) for Windows users, that creates a detailed listing of the boot sectors, partition tables, etc. Armed with that, the fellas at Acronis can often see what is wrong, what is missing, etc.

    I would assume, that something similar exists for Linux users, but if so, I don't know where/how to get it, or how to operate it.
