I used a legitimate Acronis True Image v10 (latest build) to create a full backup of one partition of my desktop (which contained 2 partitions: a C:for the OS and primary data and D: for HPrecovery; I had backed up Cartition.) After suffering a serious Windows startup problem, I was forced to use the HP System Recovery tool which basically formatted my primary partition in the desktop to a new PC state. I basically want to recover the C: partition that I had saved up as a full backup .tib file. Despite multiple attempts, the Acronis graphic window shows up but there was no succesful recovery (it hung up); when rebooting after these attempts, the desktop forces me back into the HP System Recovery mode (and reinstalls Windows all over again!) adding more pain. I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.
