    I cannot get the recovery CD to work properly (build 2337).

    The CD boots properly, gives me a menu with three items (full support, limited support, normal Windows boot). Selecting the first option, I then get a splash screen and then a black screen. System will not respond at that point.

    System Specs:
    AMD FX-60
    4 G Corsair Twinx2048-3200c2
    4 x WD Raptor in Raid 0
    2 x Sony Combo DVD/CD RW drives
    7900GT
    Linksys wireless
    XP Pro SP2
    Backing up to external SATA drive by USB

    Sounds like you have to download build 3567 and use the BartPE plugin. The "normal" recovery CD uses a Linux based system and this could have problems with your Raid0-array.

    Hello Arlie,

    First of all you might want to try the acpi=off noapic workaround detailed in the Acronis Support sticky titled <Please Read Before You Post>.

    Thank you very much, indeed that works. So much for the "Please Read Before Posting." :oops:

    You could try creating a rescue floppy rather than a cd. I believe it uses a different architecture, dos based rather than linux.

    Hi whocrazy,

    Essentially they are both the same. Selecting "Full" on either the CD or the floppy version drops you into a Linux based rescue environment whilst the "Safe" selection uses a combination of DOS and your motherboard's BIOS routines.

    Regards
