I just upgraded from B 764 to 768, hoping that the new build included support for my portable Firewire hard disk but it's still not there. I was able to create the HD images on the same drive fine under Win XP (Home Ed) but the drive was not visible on the rescue CD's GUI. Fortunately this drive also has a USB-2 interface and when I use that one with the rescue CD, the portable drive and the backup images are visible and accessible. Are the TI developers aware of this Firewire problem? The TI documentation claims IEEE 1394 support, so what gives? I prefer using it instead of the USB-2 interface because USB is a CPU hog compared to Firewire.
