Bypass Seagate DiscWizard's brand check #
Seagate Discwizard is now based on Acronis True image 11, which offers cloning (proportional if desired), backup/restore, and wiping of disks. Normally, an internal Seagate/Maxtor brand drive is required for the boot CD to function (otherwise the following message appears: "Error - To use the product, at least one Seagate or Maxtor device should be installed in your system"). This is an unfortunate bug for users of Seagate/Maxtor external devices. Thankfully, fmyhr has posted a workaround on Seagate's Community Forums that was provided by one of their techs: at the error screen, hold down Alt while typing "t" then "o" (for "tech override") and then click OK.
