Does TI 10 work with Vista? Any problems?
TI 10 (build 4,942) still has a few "Vista" bugs which the next build is supposedly going to fix (no date on that, of course). Currently, for the best results, it is recommened to backup the complete drive on which Vista is installed. This allows for a bootable restore. Otherwise, you may have to run the repair options from the Vista DVD to fix it after a restore.
If you haven't tried it yet, you can download the trial version and see if it works for you.
I downloaded 4942 and ran a full backup of the drive. I also created a bootable rescue Cd only it wont boot when I shut down and try restarting with the Cd in the Cd drive.
Is the boot order in the Bios such that the system tries to boot from the CD before the hard drive?
You nailed it. The Bios was set to read from the Hard Drive before the CD drive. Changed the BIOS and now it starts TI from the CD Bootable media.
Never gave the BIOS a thought. Thanks for the help.
Odd isn't it ... you're the second person tonight with that problem. Glad you got it going.
Hello Phil B,
Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.
Please note that Acronis True Image 10.0 Home supports Windows Vista and one can install and use Acronis True Image 10.0 Home under Windows Vista to perform backup/restore operations, as well as use other tools of Acronis True Image like Clone Disk or Mount Image etc.
Please also be aware that as MudCrab mentioned, you might need to use Windows Vista DVD to perform Startup Repair after image restoration/cloning process finished. We are aware of this issue and Acronis Development Team is working on it. We will certainly do our best in order to provide you with a new build of the Acronis True Image, which contains the fix as soon as possible.
