Just got a new Dell 8400 with one 160GB S-ATA drive. When I boot from the TI 8.0 build 774 standalone boot CD to image the disk before I get started destroying my new machine <g>, I get a message while the Acronis loader is loading saying "ata1: disabling port". When the boot disk gets done loading, it can't find my lone hard drive and says "no drives found". It's frustrating! If I boot from the safe version of the standalone boot disk it can find the hard drive OK but can't find my CD/DVD burner to write the output. Seems like there ought to be a way to have both the S-ATA drive and the CD/DVD burner visible to the standalone backup program at the same time! I'll be happy to try anything! Thanks for your help.
