    Would TIS work on Dell PowerEdge servers? I was told no by a friend as apparently TIS does not have "Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller Device Drivers" present. This true? Also, I have the drivers available to me. Would the TIS bootable rescue media builder have an ability to add those drivers to it?

    You should probably try the trial to be sure. But if the drivers are present on the OS then they will be available to TIS under Windows.

    This is not possible with the Linux/DOS rescue disk - however what is possible is that you can create a Bart PE (Windows) boot disk and plug TI(S) into that. This does allow you to add your own storage and network drivers.

    Hi,

    I tested Acronis 8 and 9.1 on PowerEdge 2850 and 2950 with PERC5 and PERC6 and worked flawlessly.

    In worst case, BartPE is your friend!
