I used Norton Save / Restore for a couple of years with no problems. I periodically test my recovery procedure. Last time I tested it would not boot from the Recovery Disk. I determined that the only significant change I made was implementing Raid 1 using the Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA Raid Controller on my Mother Board. I contacted Norton who’s only suggestion was to reduce my memory from 4GB to 2GB. At that point I purchased TI 2009. I have been successful using TI 2009 to save complete and incremental images in windows. I’ve also restored files using both windows and the Linux Recovery Disk. In an effort to have as many options as possible, I created a Vista PE CD. When I attempt to boot from it, I had similar results as the Norton Recovery Disk. It boots quickly and then the Hard Disk Light stays steady for 45 minutes or so before it launches the Shell Swapper. At that point I can change the display resolution, etc. but it won’t go any further. I tested the Norton Recovery Disk and the Vista PE disk on my son’s PC (non raid) and has no issues. I guess my question is do I really need a Vista PE Disk or can I assume I can restore a full image on my raid system, since I can restore files using the Linux Recovery Disk? If I need a Vista PE Disk how do I install the Raid Drivers? I'm assuming that's the problem. Thanks for your help.
