    Change your motherboard/combo ;) unless Acronis provides a patch that changes the parameters as mentionned in another thread. I grant that modifying them allows writing working CD/disks set on my HP notebook... Good deal as i was about to return the box to my retailer!

    Hello --

    Wow - a nice series of posts :) Yes, indeed, Acronis True Image bootable media is Linux-based and it is quite flexible, so that switching on and off some parameters you may fix the problems with booting from it. Though I'd suggest to ask Acronis Support directly if you are not sure if you are going to change the right parameter or if it is needed at all.

    Thank you.

    The best way in my opinion would be picking the "quiet" or "acpi=off quiet" parameter from the file f11.cfg and copy/pass it in bootwiz.cfg and cdboot.cfg during media generation, so that there's no need adding an ACPI/NOACPI option and so that there's no need manually modifying bootwiz.cfg and cdboot.cfg.

    I am not too sure how I should modify my f11.cfg. The copy I have:

    [start]
    echo Starting Acronis True Image...
    initrd ramdisk.dat /s
    kernel kernel.dat quiet
    quiet on
    mbrcrcs on
    vga vesa

    [continue]
    sysboot /active

    [bootmgr]
    default continue
    delay 30

    Hello Mike --

    Actually, as the disc was burned without "acpi=off" pameter - you will need to enter it each time manually upon booting. You can contact me personally and I'll give you a link to an .iso file that will allow you to burn the disc with this parameter.

    Thank you.

    The f11.cfg file defines how the linux kernel loads but it applies to the Acronis loader in the SECURE ZONE ONLY! It means that changing the configuration file won't solve the boot from CD/disks trouble on some ACPI computers/bios/motherboards. F11.cfg is in acronis true image installation directory. Change it from :
    [start]
    echo Starting Acronis True Image...
    initrd ramdisk.dat /s
    kernel kernel.dat quiet
    quiet on
    mbrcrcs on
    vga vesa

    [continue]
    sysboot /active

    [bootmgr]
    default continue
    delay 30

    to

    [start]

    echo Starting Acronis True Image...
    initrd ramdisk.dat /s
    kernel kernel.dat acpi=off quiet
    quiet on
    mbrcrcs on
    vga vesa

    [continue]
    sysboot /active

    [bootmgr]
    default continue
    delay 30
