As soon as I plug the hard disk in another machine or if I start up from a different partition, Time Machine no longer understands which disk to use and starts backing up files to the wrong place. All I can do after that is formatting the Time Machine partition and start from scratch. That's why I'm looking for a different solution too. (I was so happy that I was finally able to use Time Machine and now it appears to be a bad solution).

Hmm... so does this problem go away if you just use a separate disk for time machine only... that's what I do and I've never had an issue like this. Seeing how cheap external hard drives are these days it seems like an easy fix.
