    Hi guys,

    I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 on my PC, as I didnt want Linux to alter the Acronis Loader I already have setup I didnt let Linux create a Bootloader (dunno if this was a mistake or not - I'm kinda new to Linux).

    Viewing my hard disk in Acronis True Image shows Linux installed (1 x Linux Swap Partition [1.Gb], 1 x Ext3 [5.2Gb], 1 x Ext3 [3.2Gb]) but I cannot boot Linux as it doesnt show in the Acronis Loader.

    Is there a way to activate the Acronis Loader to recognise the Linux partitions and boot from it?


    Silly new Linux-user not taking time out read the instructions lol :)

    Hello playaz,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Multiboot Managing Software.

    Could you please create Acronis Report in the way described at Acronis Help Post and send it to along with the link to this thread? This will allow us to give you the most appropriate advice according to your partition layout and the configuration.

    Thank you.
