1. I install v12 on a machine with V11 without un-installing V11. Build 9615 didn't create any Startup menu items on Vista ultimate machine. 2. Build 9615 (on vista) wants to create a "system protection" backup. The iniitial time estimate on this was 3 hours. I should memtion that v11 restored 39 gbs and then expanded the hard drive from 100 gb to about 300 gb (new hard drive) in 2 hours. This is a 1.8 ghz dual core laptop with 2 gb. of memort from a USB 2 external drive.
