    There are not enough information.

    The default workflow for your doing would be:

    1. Vista Home on the primary partition on the hdd
    2. starting with Ti-rescue-CD creating fullbackup the partition
    3. install VistaUltimate over Home
    4. starting with Ti-rescue-CD and restore the image of 2.

    So, where are the differences to your workflow?

    Hello Themos and MrMorse,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image 11 Home

    To make the operating system bootable please repair Vista Boot Configuration Data in the following way:
    1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the CD\DVD disc drive, and then (re)start the computer;
    2. Press a key when you are prompted;
    3. Select language, time, currency, keyboard or input method, and then click Next;
    4. Click Repair your computer;
    5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next;
    6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box click Command Prompt;
    7. Type the following:
    Bootrec.exe /FixMbr
    Bootrec.exe /FixBoot

    If you want to completely rebuild Boot Configuration Data, then you should issue the following command:
    Bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
    This command scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista. Additionally, this option lets you select the installations that you want to add to the Boot Configuration Data store.

    Thank you.
