I am on TI 8. I have used the Startup Recovery Manager in my laptop before and it works fine there, but in a new machine it doesn't want to load. This is an Asus K8S-MX board with an AMD Sempron 2800+, latest BIOS. Startup Recovery Manager just stays in the screen telling PLEASE WAIT... but nothing happens. I have a CD made with the Create Bootable Rescue Media and it doesn't load either if I use the FULL option, but it loads with the SAFE option and I can access the Acronis Secure Zone without problems and restore. Does anybody have any input for me here? I like to use the Recovery Manager, not CDs, this is one of the biggest reason why I use TI. Thanks.
