My TI 9, build 3854, BOOT CD does NOT detect my CD Drive. I'll try to be as brief as I can (I know I have a "reputation" here for lengthy posts), but I want to make my problem clear, so please try to read through. I am trying to restore an image from CD's (9 of them which I made with build 2259, and NO I'm not using build 3854 to try a restore with an image made with build 2259) to a new 120GB HD I bought to install in my laptop to replace the existing 20GB HD. My plan was to:1. Make an image, stored on CD's. 2. Place the Boot CD in my CD drive BEFORE I turned off the machine to swap drives. 3. Take out the old HD. 4. Install the new HD (a Western Digital Scorpio 120GB laptop HD) 5. Start up with the Boot CD. 6. Restore the image to the new drive (now in the machine) Now here's where I got "stopped":1. I tried the build 3854 Boot CD, but I saw that it didn't detect my CD Drive, so I "aborted" that effort. However, the build 3854 in the Windows environment DID detect my CD Drive (which comes into play later). 2. I uninistalled build 3854, and installed build 2259, which is the build on the TI CD that I bought. 3. Since the build 2259 Boot CD DID detect my CD Drive, I selected that as the "backup" location, and went ahead and made the (9) CD backup with that build. That operation went OK. 4. With the old drive removed and the new drive in place, I booted off the build 2259 CD and attempted to restore the image. 5. STOPPED: Following GroverH's excellent "restore" guide, I got all the way to the "proceed" button, clicked on it, and immediately TI gave me an "Information" window that said that the backup files had been "successfully" installed. Obviously they hadn't, because the thing didn't even ask me to put in a single CD of the 9 that I made. Nevertheless, just for kicks I tried to boot into windows from the new HD, and, much as I expected, the "no operating system present" message and failure to boot ensued. So here's what I'm thinking of doing:1. I'm going to try and download build 3854 again, reinstall it, and see if the Boot CD will detect my CD Drive. If so, I'll try to make an image and restore it again, using that build. 2. If that doesn't work, I'm thinking about that "Ultimate CD for Windows" thing, and then using it to see if I can restore to the new HD with TI in the Windows environment provided by "UCD4W". Any suggestions??
