    When I try to start TrueImage 10 from CD I got an error message

    Acronis Loader Fatal Error;
    boot drive partition not found
    press <enter> to try to boot your OS.

    This error was discussed in the following thread before:


    In this thread an Acronis support member gave the hint to download
    an additional, special ISO image, burn it on a CD, FIX the hard disc with it and try again.

    Since this recommendation was given in April 2006 (over a year ago!!) I would have thought that the error is fixed in the newest releases of TrueImage. Much to my surprise it is not.

    Obviously this is a bug in TrueImage not in Win2000, because because other programs like Paragon Drive Backup could handle this kind of hard discs without problem.

    So do I really still have to download the ISO image to burn it, to fix it and to restart again o_O

    Or is there a shorter way meantime ?

    What is the error at all ? Why do the fix Master Boot Record (MBR) need a fixing ?
