    I see all this threads and topics about making a bootable CD and recovering a HDD image from a network drive.

    I've never recovered anything with ATI before (just made some image backups), so I have no experience whatsoever.

    I put the image on my second HDD. Does the boot program (and I'm assuming it's a program hehe :D) let you specify which location your image is located? And by that, I mean in your own computer?

    Thanks, and thanks for not flaming this noobish question :p

    On your own computer (i.e. not a network drive), yes you SHOULD be able to select and restore an image. Just burn the recovery CD and then boot with that CD. Start the 'restore image' wizard to see for yourself. You can go through the steps of selecting the image and destination before committing to a restoration.

    Depending on your hardware, you may or may not be able to actually get to that point. See the numerous posts about SATA and RAID HDD setups. TI support has been nonexistent, but is showing signs of renewed activity. Finally, we are seeing prerelease builds that have better SATA and RAID support (772 and 773).
    The boot CD uses Linux.

    Ah ok I see.

    But no I don't have any SATA drivers so there would be no problem :)

    Thanks :cool:
