AOMEI STILL not ready for use, several issues
The recent update to 2.2 is a step forward but AOMEI still has
some show stopping bugs.
When creating UEFI bootable media it is NOT putting the correct efi
files in the ISO image, UEFI booting to the boot media is not
possible unless you manually insert the \efi\boot\bootx64.efi file
into the image.
When trying to restore a UEFI image to a disk that is a MBR
disk, AOMEI will still NOT correctly convert the disk to GPT.
Booting is not possible from a recovery. Granted this may be an
issue to few users but someone, sometime is going to inherit a disk
that was MBR and want to restore their backup to it. Even Free
Partition Manager will not convert it. Windows will nt covert
it if it has any data on it. The only solution is to delete all
partitions and then use Windows drive management to convert it - THEN
- restore the image.
I can't seem to register a brand new installation of AOMEI PRO
onto a fresh Windows 8.1 64 bit UEFI system. I can install the
previous version but it will NOT accept the license code. It
says INVALID CODE. I installed it to a WIn 7 64 with no issue.
Apparently when you put the AOMEI Standard (perhaps PRO too but
read above) it DISABLES the "Time to display recovery options
when needed" in the Windows Startup and Recovery settings.
This is truly bizarre.
I am a tech in a Fortune 1000 company, we are looking for a well
priced backup to use world wide. I was excited about AOMEI but
these stupid bus just keep cropping up. We might just buy a bunch of
Tech licenses if AOMEI ever gets these bugs fixed. As it stands no ther eis no way I can recommend this product.
When is this stuff going to be fixed?
