    I have True Image Workstatino 9.1
    However, it does not recognize the LAN Card.

    Buffalo LPC4-CLX

    Is there any advice?

    It does not recognise the LAN card from Windows or from the Linux shell?

    Thank you for reply.

    It recognize on Windows when I create the image file.
    But it does not recognize on Linux Shell when I recover from the image file.

    If you have a different brand of PC LAN card available, try that. It seems that the Buffalo card drivers are not included in the Linux environment.

    Contact Acronis tech support and see if they can provide a disk with the needed drivers.

    Or you can make the Bart PE cd with the True Image plug-in.

    Haruchan,

    If Windows recognises the card then it should be recognised via BartPE.

    Are you sure that you have created the BartPE CD correctly?

    The Linux driver for the Buffalo LPC4-CLX is the axnet_cs driver

    To download a Linux driver go here : http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Hardware-HOWTO/pcmcia.html

    Driverguide has a windows version of the drivers http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=54935 that may work with XP. You'll have to sign up for a free membership. Download the file and create a folder called Buffalo in the Drivers\Net directory where your BartPE is installed. Extract the files to this new folder and rebuild the CD. No guarantees. If you have the original drivers or CD or floppy you can follow the same steps I mentioned.

    Hello haruchan,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    First of all, please make sure you use the latest build (3854) of Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation. To get access to updates you should first register your software.

    Please recreate your Acronis Bootable Media after updating. Most likely, the support of this network adapter is implemented in the latest build.

    If the problem persists, please create Windows System Information and Linux system information (sysinfo.txt) as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Then submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and information to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with a solution.

    Please also note that a possible workaround is to use BartPE based CD allowing one to boot the computer into a Windows-like environment adding the appropriate drivers for any hardware devices installed in the computer at startup, as Ralphie, Tabvla and thomasjk explained.

    Thank you.
