I needed to restore WinXP Home on my desktop this past weekend. My custom-built box came with a retore CD that was made with Norton Ghost. It worked and restored my computer without a hitch. I immediately installed SP2 before installing other software and drivers. No problem. I then installed TI 8. and thought this would be a relatively low risk opportunity to image my raid 0 drive and try a restore - before I load and configure my other software. TI installed just fine. But when I went to image the raid drive, it blue screened. This occured on each of several subsequent reattempts. I even tried to do it from safe mode - same exact bug check for BAD_Pool_Caller. I contacted the computer manufacturer and was told that when you restore from one image software, that it leaves some kind of fingerprint on the drive and can inhibit other brands of imaging software from working properly. Their suggestion was to format my drive and manually install windows, raid, drivers, etc. and then try TI again. But blue screening on a fresh install, and even in safe mode, is not a good thing. I've heard elsewhere that bs from within safe mode can also suggest a possible hardware problem. But it looks like I'll have to try rebuilding from scratch w/o using the system restore and see if TI works then!!!
