Just wonder if I'm going mad here? I got a brand new unformatted HDD and put it in my laptop, and put the old HDD into a USB enclosure and booted the laptop using the Acronis recovery disk (the supplied installation disk). When it boots, I selected the option including USB, but then none of the operations will work as it says it can't see any drives. I swapped the drives around and ran TI from within Windows and cloning from the old drive, now back in the laptop to the new drive in the USB enclosure, worked fine. So why not first time - does USB not work well from the recovery CD? (In case it matters, I'm still using TI9).
