just discovered that i actually has Acronis true image 8 OEM version that came along with an external hard disk i bought 2 years ago. i install the software, make a boot disk , connect SATA disk to my PC and attempt to clone my current IDE to SATA as it claims to be able to do so. Problem is that when i boot from the Acronis boot CD, and the software wizzard starts, it says " Acronis true image can not find any Disks" . This is funny cos the software itself running when run in windows interface can recorgnise the 2 disks but when i boot outside windows it doesnt see anyting. Now i have just ordered the full version of Acronis 11 for $34 and am downloading it now it better work or i will really be pissed.
