Hi I have a Dell laptop whose harddrive is failing such that Dell tech support told me to avoid turning it off at all costs. I have a installed TI 8.0 PC0446CD Version CV1.0 and backed up the entire drive to a western digital external harddrive. (Happily the computer restarted after I'd installed). I want to confirm before I turn off the computer and try to get the image on my new harddrive that this *should* work without fail. If there are known issues with this version of TI that for some reason would cause a high likelihood of failure I could download the latest version. However I would rather not do this in case my laptop does not restart again. I am using Xp SP2. 1) Please tell me what *you* would do! 2) Are the WD drivers on the TI bootup disk? Thanks very much.
