    I was trying out Acronis OS selector and it failed to detect my install of XP. When I removed it the only OS I could point to was a linux install I had. Thats OK. Problem is I couldn't get back into windows.

    What I've tried was using a XP disk and using the commands:


    Windows is found and the boot starts but now I have config_list_failed
    STOP: 0x000000073 (0x000000001, 0xC000017D, 0x00000001, 0xF6C4FBB:cool:.

    I've investigated this alot and I'm not finding much. I cant believe this happened. I've used bootloaders before and this happens on a trial software?

    What can I do?

    I can also say i've been trying to use the restore media and I cant remove the OS selector and choose windows only my other OS. I've also found that my main OS drive is being detected as completly full (which it wasn't half full before this problem)

    Hello tange1,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Could you please try the following workaround?

    Please boot up from the Windows Bootable CD, then go to the Recovery Console (the first Repair option you come to).

    From the command prompt please type:

    BOOTCFG /rebuild

    After that, please reboot your computer.

    If this workaround does not help then please create Acronis Report in the way described below:

    - Download and run Acronis Report Utility;
    - Select the "Create Bootable Floppy" option;
    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the A: drive and proceed with creation of the bootable floppy;
    - Boot the computer from this diskette and wait for report creation process to finish;
    - Collect the report file from the floppy.

    Please submit a request for technical support. Attach the collected report file to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
