Hi all Usually my PC will boot to the Acronis OS loader screen and I select XP without any problem. Right now I get a message saying: Acronis Loader: No configuration file present Press <Enter> to reboot This doesn't alter anything, just brings me back to the same point. I purchased my copy of ATI 8.0 online a few weeks ago but foolishly neglected to create a rescue disk. Would Acronis have automatically registered my copy of the program so there will be a record of my purchase? Reading through the threads on the forum is helpful but I'm unsure whether the message is referring to a file that ATI or XP itself needs. Any suggestions as to the best way to recover from this situation? PC spec: Abit KT-7 Raid mbo, AMD Athlon 1GB cpu, 1 x 40MB Hitachi/IBM ATA HD (very new), 1.5GB RAM, NEC 3520 DVD drive, 3.5" Floppy, 250MB internal ZIP drive. No problems to report with this setup - not the latest and greatest but it's what I can afford. Thanks in advance for any help!!
