I purchased TI Home 11 in July/2008 which ran for a while and was even able to restore an image after some problems with my PC. Several months passed and then TI started giving me errors when creating images so I decided to reinstall ... and that's when the real problems started. Namely, that after about 5 minutes into the install, an error appears stating that the install process could not continue because an older version was found (I don't have any older versions). After many attempts to get help from Acronis I finally gave up and opened an thread on this site with the problem. One of the power posters was kind enough to give me VERY EXPLICIT and manual instructions on how to COMPLETELY remove TI. I followed them to the letter 3 times, same result... older version found! That's when I remembered that Seagate's Disk Wizard uses TI. So I did an uninstall (again!) and was able to install DW without a hitch. I then proceeded to do a full image/verification and was able to open/search the image without a problem. On a separate note, I've read posts stating that DW has or may have problems with external USB-SATA drives because among other things it's Linux based. The posts also go on to tell on how to create a BartPE disk etc.. etc. Now to the $64K question: Being that I have a tried and pruven TI-11 Rescue Disk, can I use it to restore an image made by Disk Wizard to get around the drivers/Linux problems?
