    If I already have true image deluxe do I need to uninstall that before installing the True image 7 full download or will it do an automatic upgrade

    I had no problems installing TI7 over TI6 using the TI7 install provided by Digital River when I upgraded.

    Hi Derek,

    Although your situation is slightly different than for upgrading from TrueImage version 6 to version 7, here is the answer from Acronis for upgrading from 6 to 7:

    "You can upgrade your version of True Image either just running the newer version installation program or uninstalling the older one and making the clean install."

    I tried and get a BSOD

    so uninstalled completely and still get a BSOD when installing

    I'm puzzled

    XP home

    I disabled NOD & TDS first

    disconnected from net and turned off firewall, but something stops the installation, about 9/10ths of the way in sudden bsod and freeze

    reboot & it appears to be there but all nothing happens clicking on the icons in the program, files

    I've totally uninstalled manually now and removed all references to it in the registry

    I'll try again some time

    Ok I've found and solved the pronblem

    It was blue screening because of a clash with IdeChanDrv.sys which is the Intel applications accellerator that is an optional extra with Intel P4 and some motherboards.
    It's supposed to speed up hard disc access and replaces the XP drivers, but it is flakey at times anyway
    Uninstalling the intel accellerator cures the problem.

    The IAA is nothing but BSOD waiting to happen on my system.
