I have been trying to boot from the Acronis Recovery CD I have made, but havent had any luck. Machine: 8171-31U (IBM Machine type/model) Things I have done. 1. Tried making both a Safe Mode and Full Version Boot CD.... No Go 2. Tried using both CDs on another Machine. Both worked fine. 3. Tried booting using Windows PE ... Booted fine. 4. Tried booting using an old Norton Ghost Boot CD.... Booted fine. I have tried booting so many times, using so many different BIOS settings, that I am 99% sure its not a BIOS settings. I have never seen a computer not boot from a certain CDs. Normally if I have a bootable CD, it works unless something is wrong on the machine side (ie. Configuration or something.). Since I am new to this software, I am wondering if this is a common issue?
