I have a laptop that has no cd-rom. I have an external HD that I used to make a copy of the image. Is there a way to install acronis onto a partition the ext HD and make the computer boot up then restore the image? I really don't want to buy an ext cd-rom just for this purpose! I know I could do a drive to drive copy and then boot off the ext HD then restore to the new internal HD but I have some other data on their that I'd rather not wipe completely.
