Hi! I recently built a new computer, and decided to ditch Ghost 9 in favour of TI 10 (not least cos of the Vista support). I did a test restore of my system partition when I first installed TI (which worked fine), but haven't restored since then. I recently ran into a problem and decided to restore my system partition. I was prompted to reboot. Acronis tried to launch the boot loader on reboot, but hung at the first page of text. This happened at the same place when I tried to boot using the recovery CD. (Hopefully this will make more sense to you than me) $ /bin/insmod iswraid using /lib/modules/iswraid.o Iswarid: Intel(TM) Software Raid Driver Version 0.1.5 Iswraid: Options: iswraid_halt_degraded=0, iswraid_resist_failing=1, iswraid_error_threshold=10 Iswraid: Probed 2 SCSI disks, found 0 ISWRAID disks init_module: iswraid Unknown error19 $ /bin/insmode usbcore Using /lib/modules/usbcore.o Usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs usb.c: registered new driver hub $ /bin/insmod usb-ohci using /lib/modules.usb-ohci (at this point it hung - nothing happened after this). I successfully managed to restore using the BartPE plugin, but I can't work out what's causing the problem. The only hardware I've changed since I did the test restore was adding a Belkin pcie USB card. Specs: E6400 (overclocked to 3.2ghz - tested at stock with the same error) 2gb ddr2 800 Gigabyte 965 DS4 (F8 bios) 7900gs 2x sata2 hard drives. The loader probes 2 scsi devices (which presumably are my hard drives), but doesn't seem to do anything with them. They're running in AHCI mode, not raid. Like I said, the only thing I've added is the USB card but I don't use any USB hard drives, so I don't think that's the problem. First question - anything I can do about this? Second question - I'm planning on installing Vista fairly soon. Does the BartPE method still work under Vista x64? I'll probably dual boot for a while, so could I use XP x86 to restore Vista without going through the reboot? Cheers!
