Hi everyone Because of having to contact Norton via telephone re serial number of system works software in the event that I format the hard drive more times than they think is necessary, on the advice of a guy in this forum, I’ve attempting to try Acronis True Image to avoid conventionally reinstalling all software in the event that I think a format is required.
Because I’m using twin SATA hard drives which require during the installation of Win XP (F6 & S) to install the Via drivers to make contact with the Hds I’m finding a problem using Acronis True Image.
On boot up from the pre made by me Acronis bootable CD, it tells me I have no hard drive. I must admit and because I’m financially tight the Acronis True Image software is a freebie from a PC magazine but it does say it’s a full deluxe version.
Does anyone know if this is a common problem with twin SATA / Acronis, and what to do to remedy this, or is it me doing something wrong? Thanks in advance Son-Of-a-Gun

If you register your free copy of TrueImage Deluxe on their website you qualify for Acronis TrueImage 7 at the upgrade price of $29.99. If you do buy it then you also qualify for free updates which keep you up to date with the latest drivers.
Just a word of warning. If you do go for the update can I suggest that you keep the serial number for your present version safe. If you had to install on a clean PC at a later date (maybe following a crash and reinstall of Windows) then it knows that it is an update and after you have entered the serial number for version 7 it asks you for the serial number you updated from.
