Hello, I'm checking out the Acronis TI Trial with my laptop Sony Vaio. So far, a lot of Acronis features correspond well to my need. However, I need to make sure of one thing before purchasing the product. This happens to be the key feature for me if it works. In my laptop, I have a hidden parition for manufacturer recovery purpose, and of couse, with it I have Vaio Recovery Center to send the pc to its original state by pressing F10 at POST. However, there are loads of bloatware delivered with the pc and I have to do the samething over and over each time I reinstalled it: Removing all unneeded programs. I was looking for a software which can do the same thing my pc brand does, creating a recovery partition. Acronis Startup Recovery combining with Acronis Secure Zone give me that solution (creating a hidden partition with SZ, backup the system to SZ, activating Startup Recovery Boot manager to recover when needed by pressing F11). However, when I read the documentation of Acronis TI, I understand that Startup Recovery will overwrite MBR which will possibly render my manufacturer hidden partition useless. But the documentation also states that I can reinstall the old MBR if needed to. So what I'm actually looking for is some confirmation (from experience, knowledge,...) whether I can have two hidden partitions and I can choose to boot either of them (by pressing either F10 or F11 at start). And if it's doable, how to do that please. I have an external HDD which I would like to use as the Secure Zone, so this two hidden partitions would not be on the same drive. Some might suggest deleting the current hidden partition but I would not. It will void my warranty and besides that partition actually contains manufacturer software I might need in the future when my use for this laptop changes. Thanks a lot in advance and for taking time reading this !
