I tried sending this question to support@ but got no reply. Apparently I am suppose to post the problem here first? I tried to create an image of a W2K disk to use as an emergency recover disk, in case the original fails. When this process finished, I had several files on the target disk named as I selected in step 5. In general it appeared to work fine, but when I then took that image and restored it back to a new drive, I ended up with a drive that would not boot. The HD was found by the BIOS and it appeared that it was about to boot from it, but it just sort of hung at the point where the HD should have taken over the boot process. Here are the basic steps I used to create the image: 1. Boot to the recovery CD (created from within Acronis TI) 2. Select "Full Version" 3. Select "Create image" 4. Select All of Disk 1 (c: drive) by checking the top selection 5. Select Disk 2 plus a filename for the 'copy to' file. 6 Select "Create Full Backup Image Archive" 7. Select "Automatic" for file sizing 8. Select "Normal" compression 9. Select no password (just 'Next' past this prompt leaving fields blank) 10. Select "Proceed". Ideas here?
