Just attempted to make a new rescue Linux boot CD using both the compatibility mode and non compatibility mode. Using a rewrite CD both times I had problem getting the wizard to either format the CD or write to the CD. Persevering I eventually managed to burn a rescue CD using both the compatibility mode and non compatibility mode. Neither CD would boot correctly, the screen would show two lines of Linux and then stop to a blank screen, I needed to remove the CD and then reboot the computer.

Some information: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Raid 0. The latest version (just released) has been installed and the Macrium Rescue Disk is v2.1.2525.

As a last resort I made a rescue disk ticking both the compatibility mode box and the problem log box.

Below is the result when booting this CD:

Dev/ram0 console = TTY2 VGA788 Log Level =6
E187A615 N O A P I C A Boot_image = Linux x26
PID Hash Table Entries: 4096 (order: 12, 16384 bytes)

Console switching to colour frame buffer device 100x37
Floopy0: No floopy controllers found
HDA: Lost Interrupt 9 times

This is the information shown on the screen after booting with the rescue disk with the log box ticked. I'm pretty sure I've copied it all down correctly. If you can make sense of all this you must be a real clever bugger. Any further information you might need just ask and I'll try my best.

I should add that the PE rescue disk works normally (old version, not the latest).

Hi Kapiti

Sorry you are having problems. The Linux rescue CD works with the majority of PC hardware, but not all. The Windows PE rescue CD has more functionality, better hardware compatibility and is the preferred option. If you are having problems with the Linux CD then please use Windows PE.

Kind Regards
