Problem with new 'ootb' Mini 10v I wonder if there are any pointers.
I want to
clone/image the HDD before I embark on a hackintosh journey.
First, all is working fine as supplied: Win 7, BT
, WiFi etc.
I installed trial version of Acronis True Image 2010 Netbook Edition - don't get me wrong I'll buy it if it works - BUT - The Imaging to an external USB HDD went fine, three partiions (EFI? /Dell recovery/ OS); then I set up the Acronis bootable media prep to a USB stick, because of course if I did want to restore, this would be needed. There is the problem: The USB will not boot up on the 10v, it goes into a rebbooting 'loop' unil I stop it. However the same stick WILL boot up a friend's Mini 9 no problem.
Any one of you any good ideas? Thanks.
PS while chewing this over, my 2GB ram arrived (from Crucial) so I got that installed thanks to the guide posted here by malicious, it went sweet and improved Win 7 no end - why was it not an option from Dell?
