I am using TI8 build 903 on a new Dell 9100. TI has trashed the hard drive twice now. First it trashed the Partition Table when I activiated the Startup Recovery manager. After that Dell sent me a new HD with all the software installed. I made a backup of all partitions execept one where I was putting the TIB file. Note that I use PartionMagic 8 to create multiple partitions. Note also that there are 3 partitions on the drive when it arrives from Dell. With the new drive I did NOT use the startup recovery manager but did create a Secure Zone. The same thing happened - TI8 started moving partitions instead of just taking a piece of the partition I asked it to use for the SZ. When it was done the partition table was again trashed. I have a TI recovery CD and I had saved my backup TIB to a different computer. I tried to restore my C drive from the backup up but now when I boot I get the error "<windowsroot>\system32\hal.dll does not exist". I can look at the TIB file on my other computer and see that the DLL is indeed on the backup. I am assuming that the backup image is not restoring properly but do not know why. So not only had TI trashed my hard drive twice, it won't even restore the backup that would save me many hours of work. I cannot send a report since there is no way to get the computer working without clearing the HD and starting over. But this problem is clearly repeatable using PartitionMagic, A dell 9100 (or other Dell system) and TI 8 build 903. I do not know if other builds would solve the problem or not. PLEASE HELP!!!
