    I'm performing a restore to a new Hard Drive. The image was created from a fresh install of WinXP Pro, Office, NAV, etc. so it is a small footprint. The image is stored on a network drive and I'm restoring after using TI7 rescue discs to a fdisk'd hard drive.

    It has now been 2hrs since the restore began as the status is "Processing, please wait". If it takes any longer, then using an image vs. doing this manually will not provide any benefit.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Shouldn't take 2 hours to restore 2GB of data. Make sure the PC can pull data from the network drive. Have you attempted this procedure before? An alternate solution is to reload WXP in the new HD, boot into windows, and see if you could pull data from the network drive. If this works, then reboot with the boot disc and reload the image file from the network drive.

    I don't believe this person has the OS in the HD.

    Hello newhpeinc,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/).

    Could you please find the full version number as it is shown at http://www.acronis.com/support/ and let me know it?

    Please try the following workaround:

    Please boot from the Acronis True Image rescue disc and press F11 key when the "Starting Acronis Loader..." message appears. After you get the "Linux Kernel Settings" prompt, please add the "acpi=off noapic" parameter to the end of the kernel command line (do not remove the word "quiet") and click on the OK button.

    Thank you.

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm running Version 8 Build 774. It appears to be a hung process as the status has not changed. I'll power off the PC, start it again from the rescue floppies, and follow your instructions and post here with the results.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    This workaround is for Acronis rescue CD only.

    In order to use it with a set of floppies please do the following:

    - Open the bootwiz.cfg file on the first diskette;
    - Add the "acpi=off noapic" line and save the file;
    - Boot the computer from these diskettes.

    Thank you.

    Since I read your initial instructions, I created a rescue CD and everything appears to be working for the time being.

    So, this is a step I'll need to follow anytime I want to use the TI8 rescue CD to start a PC?

    Andrew,

    The restore proceeded and completed. However, the image doesn't work -- the computer will not run. I've created a new post given this is a new issue.

    Thanks for your assistance.
