    when I boot from a recovery disk in order to restore my computer's hard drive I get several errors of the type:

    "USB device not accepting new address. Error=-110

    when I try to do the restore my external USB hard drives on which I keep my Acronis archives are not seen (along with my mouse and anything else on a USB port).

    For many months I was able to restore from a USB drive on another computer with a flaky hard drive. But now, on this new computer I cannot.

    If I boot Windows XP and then start Acronis, it sees all of my external USB drives, it is only when I attempt it from recovery media that the drives are not there.

    Can anybody help?

    OK. I found the "workaround" under the "please read before posting" thread.

    I did the F11 bit and entered:

    quiet acpi=off noapic

    and then it seemed to work although I won't know for sure for about an hour. But Acronis did see the USB drives (and my mouse works).

    But can somebody explain this to me? Isn't this a bug? Why doesn't it get fixed in the distributed software?

    It's not exactly a bug.

    The majority of systems work without that additional command but some need it.

    Hello Tatyana,

    Just an idea.

    Why not introduce this fourth option on the selection screen: "Full version, but with ACPI and APIC disabled"?

    That would make for an easyer life on both sides.

    Hello bVolk,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    I have forwarded your request to our Development Team. They will consider it and such feature will be probably implemented in the future builds/versions of the software.

    If you want us to change the behaviour of Acronis True Image in any way or add some new features to this product, please feel free to post any of your suggestions in Acronis True Image WISH-LIST thread.

    Thank you.
