    I think it would be possible via chainloading...

    And you could open the f11.cfg in the Acronis TI installation folder with an editor to see more inspirations...

    As an alternative, consider not using the Secure Zone. The way that it is set up is too inflexible. For example, you aren't able (easily) to manage the file contents by deleting, adding or copying files to and from the zone.

    Consider instead the following. Create a small hidden, logical FAT32 partition at the end of your drive to hold the bootable recovery versions of the Acronis programs. You can boot into it easily by chainloading from GRUB. Also create a logical NTFS partition to hold backup images. If you want the protection feature offered by the Secure Zone (not accessible by Windows) then don't assign a drive letter to this partition.

    This combination gives you more flexibility than the Secure Zone. You can freely copy image files to/from your backup partition. You can boot into the recovery version of TrueImage to restore your disk if disaster strikes.

    Here is a link to some info on how to set this up:
