    I keep losing the OSS & have to re-activate it from the Cd.

    Its installed on a computer I built about 8 months ago & was ok til about a month ago. its got xppro, vista 64 & 4 installs on linux on it plus dos.

    I 1st saw an 'error3', reinstalled oss & ok. A couple days later I see non-system disk, again reinstall & ok, couple days later it froze on bootup, reinstalled oss
    from cd & ok. Today I see nonsystem disk again, when I press key it goes to xp/vista boot menu & boots ok.

    I dont use this machine every day, I use it mostly for video editing/dvd burning in XPpro. It seems to act up every other day or so.

    Hello dblake,

    Thank you for using Acronis Disk Director 10 Suite

    There can be different reasons for this unstable behavior of the OS Selector:

    1. Please check the following solution: 1866: Acronis OS Selector Fails to Load

    2. Check you Hard Disk for errors and bad sectors:

    - Go to the Command Prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd)
    - Enter the command: "chkdsk DISK: /r/f"
    where DISK is the partition letter you need to check. Please note, that
    checking the C: drive may require you to reboot the machine.

    Thank you.
