Hi am interested in purchasing a copy of Acronis True Image 8.0 but I would like to know if it will work with these specs.
Am a bit concern with the nForce M/B and the SATA drive
There seems to be a mixture of responses on the net re the product.

Foxconn Winfast NF4UK8AA-8EKRS nForce4 ultra
AMD K8 Athlon64 3500+ Socket 939 Venice Core
1XSeagate 160Gb 7200rpm 8 mb Cache NCQ Serial ATA-partiitioned with Partition Magic.
Gigabyte GA-NX66T128VP GeForce 6600GT VIVO TurboForce PCI Expres
Foxconn ATX326 Midi Tower 11-1 Card Reader Hyena 500W front USB2.0 case fan PCI-E hole
LiteOn SOHW-1673S Dual Layer 16x
TwinMOS 1GB DDR400 Dual-Channel Kit (2x512MB)

Anyone out there used this program with a partitioned SATA HDD? by the way tried using ghost2003 froze the PC. Cannot be bothered with all the talk about adding switches etc.

wait... you don't want to add switchs or configure options in ghost? thats easy. you must have some other reason.

I use the corp edition of ghost v8. it has not issues with sata. I would think that ghost 2004 or newer wouldn't have any issues either.

Acronis is one of the leading commercial apps. if you get the newest version it should support sata.

from acronis:
When Acronis True Image is running under Windows, then it works with all the hard disk drives detected by the operating system. If Acronis True Image is running in rescue mode (e.g. to restore the system partition), then the following RAID controllers are supported:

- P-ATA (IDE) RAID controllers (Promise, Highpoint)
- Most of SCSI RAID controllers (Adaptec, Dell, LSI and others)
- SATA RAID controllers (Highpoint, Intel, Promise, Silicon Image, VIA)
