    I am using TI 11 Build 8053 on a machine with a 60GB HD. I did a backup in under an hour to an external USB 2.0 HD - pretty fast.

    Restoring to the same exact drive and other hardware with the boot CD is incredibly and painfully slow. What gives? o_O

    I tried the startup parameters "quiet acpi=off noapic" but that did not help at all.

    Never heard of TI-11 build 8043. There is a build 8053 however.

    That's usually due to bad Linux drivers for the USB chipset on your computer.

    You can try other builds (8053?) or wait for the next build and see if it's better.

    You can make a BartPE or VistaPE boot disk which uses the Windows drivers. Although the drive boots a bit slower than the TI recovery disk, it does use Windows and those drivers, so it may be close to the Windows speed.

    Sorry, it's build 8053 - typo.

    I'll try the BartPE disk method.

    have the same problem with incredible, incredible slow file-restore with the rescue CD
    I am working on integrating a 3rd party Acronis T 11 plugin into winbuilder/LiveXP for my own personal use....but its defintly a LOT of work involved.

    I think Acronis would do good to revise their recovery-CD, we are not talking about exotic hardware here. For example i have two internal SataII drives which run on Intel ICH9 controller in "IDE" mode. So those dont need any special drivers at all. But the file-restore with Acronis was like 10x slower than a normal copy, i am talking 20hrs for 260GB data.

    Its not really the best thing if Acronis recommends their end-users to mess with winbuilder/bartpe...not everyone has the knowledge and requirements. Eg. building a LiveXP/BartPE on Vista64 is *extremely* involved.

    They could (IMHO) have a VistaPE/WinPE compatible bootable LiveCD NOT on Linux based with their software and full functionality (including volume mounting)..if a skilled end-user can build such a CD...why cant Acronis offer their customers? This seriously affects the use of Acronis TI since i dont think its feasable and "sellable" to have those extremely slow restore rates.

    In the meantime: Check "winbuilder" and "Mustang's Acronis plugins", it definitly works if you build a "VistaPE" bootable CD with those plugins.
