    after making an Image of the OS-Partition, I did some windows2000-updating(12 Patches 6 or 7 reboots) - everything went right. After doing the last update (witch not wanted to reboot the system) I copied 5 pictures from my usb-Stick and shut the system down.
    Two hours later I started the PC again - BIOS was loaded,windows started, the Monitor turned blue, but right before the logon-screen the computer reboots - again and again.
    I took out the acronis start-disks and loaded the TrueImage-Programm.
    Everything went fine till I had to choose the Partition for installing the Image(C:\ where I got my OS). The prog. checks the partition and says, that the 'runlist is damaged/corrupted' (Die angegebene Partition enthält folgenden Fehler: Runlist beschädigt). The program proposes to start Windows and use a Diskchekprogramm or something like this - but I cannot start Windows2000.
    What can I do?
    Make a new blank Win2000-Installation and then reinstalling the Partition-Image?
    I tested the program 2 month ago with a blank Win2000-Installation - everything went fine - but now when it's a real problem/ not a test it fails.:(

    edit: The version number is acronis TrueImage 7.0 (German) and the OS is Win2000 SP4.
