    after installing the True Enterprise Server Edition of the Acronis True Image software, I've been trying to uninstall it (as i just realized 9.1 doens't support VISTA) Anyway, after I uninstalled this program from my system, Acronis asks me to reboot. I rebooted, and the box never booted into windows vista (ultimate edition 32 bit). It didn't even go into safe mode! The only way I was able to go to windows, is to roll back to an earlier time where the software is STILL installed!

    Anybody share a similar experience as me? I really would like to get this software off of my system without crashing!

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

    Well, I had to go to safe mode to delete the program files\acronis and the common files\acronis directories. However, My computer couldn't start up again so i went to "Last Known Good Configuration" which booted it back up again. Then i went to safe mode and then deleted those directories. And finally, I think it's off.

    BTW, i'm using Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit. Some of the instructions were exactly the same, but it's a good thing I know what i'm doing to translate it into Vista 32.

    Thank you for your help!
