I installed Workstation 9.1, build 3633, on an XP Pro system. I then activated the Secure Zone and performed a backup to the new SZ. I then activated the SRM. Upon reboot, I only saw a blank screen after the bios. The system would also not boot from CD now. I did an fdisk /mbr and the system would then boot into the OS, but still not boot from CD. Unfortunately, I did not see a way to de-activate the SRM and I ended up deleting the SZ using partition magic. Once I deleted the SZ partition and uninstalled the Acronis software, the system then began to boot normally, OS or CD. I believe my whole problem started when I used the "Activate Acronis Startup Rovery Manager". This will end up being a remote system and I will not even be able to leave a recovery disk in the CD because the timeout to windows feature was removed. Any help would be appreciated.
