OK we're familiar with certain chip sets not working with TI 11 and early versions of TI 2009 because there was no IDE emulation in one version of the Intel chip sets, so Acronis didn't have the drivers in the Linux boot disk updated . I forget the details, but those of us familiar with this problem know what I'm talking about, and it was first a problem in about the summer of 2008 with TI 11. I've waited until now to try 2009 because people had problems with it also in the same way. I've been using TI11 to back up the troubled chip sets by using it on an external SATA drive with Vista 64 and TI11 loaded just for the purpose of restoring system drives. So I plug in the external drive and use the loaded TI11 to restore the system drive. It can be a pain in the ass if the unit I'm working on has no eSATA port. So I thought it would be nice to get back to using a boot disk for the entire process. Well, today I created the boot disk with TI 2009 ver 9709 and it booted to the selection screen. I then chose TI 2009 and it just went to a black screen with a blinking cursor. I waited around a minute and nothing happened. I assume TI2009 wasn't detecting the drives.
