    Hello,

    We tried to boot from the Acronis TrueImage 8 & 9 Boot CDs, but the boot process stops at "Loading, please wait...".

    What must we do, to help Acronis to boot correctly ? The computer has the following technical features :

    Athlon 64 3400+
    60GB SATA HDD
    512MB Ram DDR400

    Hello Marc,

    Have you tried the adding the commands acpi=off noapic (mind how you spell noapic - many people type noacpi by mistake) after the word quiet in Linux console command line as detailed in the Acronis Support Sticky <Please Read Before You Post>? Also could you please confirm which build of TI 8 and TI 9 you used.

    Regards

    Just what does the magic command "quiet acpi=off noapic " do?

    If it isn't really required and causes problems why isn't it built into the boot CD?

    hello seekforever,

    acpi=off is a Linux command that switches off <Advanced Configuration and Power Interface>, whilst noapic is the Linux command that disables the <Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller>.

    ACPI and APIC aren't disabled by default because for most systems (especially non laptops) they do not cause a problem.

    Regards

    Hi mbrewer,

    Just a thought. You're not by any chance using Windows 64-bit OS are you? It is not supported by either ATI8 or 9.:cool:
