Hi, I created a BARTPE disc for my Poweredge T310 with PERCS100 drivers (BCRAID) using a windows 2003 SP 4 disc. It boots wonderfully and finds the internal hard drives great! My problem is that I cannot find my external hard drive, a Seagate Expansion drive 1TB.

If I plug in my 8GB USB stick I can find that no problem, but I have to restore from a backup in Acronis and it's on my 1TB external drive. Where do I find drivers to external USB in BartPE environment! Thanks so much

Strange - If the flash drive works, the external should also - Did you check in the Disk amanger to see if it shows up ?

Did you try to unplug it and plug it in again ?

What does the device manager show ?

I hope this helps !

sgsm81, the link provided offers a couple theories, am i missing a solution on there? someone mentions a force driver install plugin for USB, but there is no link to said plugin, do you know more on it?

sysexpert, in BARTPE the disk does not show up in disk manager, how do you use device manager in BARTPE where is it located.

In Bartpe I do not have a My Computer icon. I know how to access device mgr in windows xp (the steps you mentioned...) but that does not apply in this instance

sgsm81, bottom line i need acronis true image to work (does not work with regular rescue disc because of PERC S100 drivers are not allowed, so must use BARTPE with Acronis plugin in order to boot up.

does ERD Commander have a Acronis plugin? I've never used ERD Commander and am completely unfamiliar with creating a boot disc for it, what it's for and how to use it.
