    Can I use an image of a system partition to create a dual boot system?
    I am using all of a 36gb raptor HD and I want to split it in half an install XP pro 64 bit on the first partition and restore my XP pro 32 bit image to the second partition.

    I’m thinking this wouldn’t work without a boot manager would your DDS aid in this endeavor or should I just do a clean install rather than attempt to use an image?

    Hello Tatersalad,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software and Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Yes, you will need a boot manager, such as Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 Boot Manager, to achieve your goals.

    Please note that Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 allows you to copy your operating system creating a multiboot environment, so you would not need to use Acronis True Image 8.0 in this case. However, you can do it in both ways.

    We recommend you to download and install the free trial version of Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 to see how the software works on your computer.

    Please visit Acronis online store to purchase the full version of the product.

    Please also note that we have a flexible system of discounts and the amount of the discount varies depending on the number of copies you want to purchase.

    In case you are planning to purchase many copies, please contact our Sales Team at

    Please read Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 User's Guide very carefully before using Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 Boot Manager.

    If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

    Thank you.
