    In the last week I purchased Disk Director Suite 10 and True Image 11 Home on my reloaded Acer M5620 Vista Home Premium machine and burned a standalone bootable copy of each. After much adding software I did cleanup, defragging, and then my first image backup of my C: partition with standalone TI 11. After that completed, I rebooted with the Disk Director CD and it comes up with "harddisk drives not found" E000101F4.

    I'm having a hard time understanding why TI11 can see the disks, but DDS10 cannot. Anything I should try? I see the link to the 2004 era message to do a "quiet acpi=off noapic" , but I'm not clear when I push the F11.

    I did end up resizing my C: partition "online", but now I get a "MMLoadDrv.exe has stopped working" every time I boot.

    After wrestling with a broken XP box and trying to move to a Vista box for a few days, the Acronis DD issue doesn't seem like a big deal. Using PCMover to go from XP Pro to Vista Home Premium was the real disaster!

    You press F11 at the Acronis menu that comes up when you boot the CD. This is on the screen where you select if you want to start TI Full, TI Safe, DD Full, DD Safe, etc.

    You can also try the Safe Mode version of DD. It accesses the hardware through the computer's BIOS instead of using Linux drivers.

    TI 11 uses a much more current driver set than DD 10, which hasn't been updated in a while. Hopefully, Acronis will release an update to DD soon that will include the newer drivers.


    Did you resize using Vista's Disk Management?
