    I use XP Professional with SP1. Our corporate standard idoes not include SP2. I see in some references that XP SP2 is required.

    Am I at risk using TI on SP1? If so, what is the risk?

    It isn't mentioned under system requirements. I don't think it is a problem at all. Try the trial version.

    I have it installed and it seems to work, I just wanted to know if there was a "silent issue" that might impact me at an inopportune time (restore).

    Thanks.

    I'm not aware of any problem with TI 9 and XP SP1. It could be that the references you've seen about XP SP2 relate to the creation of a BartPE/Reatogo TI plug-in (needs a Windows XP + SP2 installation CD).

    Regards

    Hello moboczky,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    May be you have been confused with the system requirements and supported operating systems (Chapter 1.4 "System requirements and supported media" of the Acronis True Image 9.0 Home User's Guide). It says that one of the supported operating systems is Windows XP SP 2. This means that Acronis True Image 9.0 Home supports Windows XP including SP 2. So you are able to use Acronis True Image 9.0 Home on Windows XP SP 1 system without any restrictions.

    Thank you.
