    Hello Alfred,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image Server (http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/ATISWin/).

    We are really sorry for the inconveniences.

    Could you please describe what you mean by "bootup to True Image Server"? Do you mean that your notebook boots to Acronis Startup Recovery Manager?

    Please make sure that you haven't Acronis Bootable CD inserted into your CD drive. Also please tell whether you have created Acronis Secure Zone and how you have activated Acronis Startup Recovery Manager (if you have).

    Thank you.

    This occur after I try to restore a image to harddisk. I am not sure what I have done any mistake. After restore, it prompt to restart the computer for complete the task. when I reboot, it go into the true image server directly even don't have CD in the CD drive.

    I can see the folder and system files but can not boot the windows XP. Please help !!

    Thanks
    Alfred

    Hello Alfred,

    It seems that you just don't perform the last step - restore the image. Apparently, you try to restore the image under Windows and Acronis True Image Server asks you to reboot the computer because it needs to obtain the full disk access. After you reboot the computer it boots into Acronis True Image Server.

    After that please launch the "Restore Image" tool and restore the image in the way described in the User's Guide (page 29, chapter 5).

    Thank you.

    Hello Alfred,

    Could you please do the following:

    - Download the file http://www.acronis.com/files/support/mbrautowrite_en.exe
    - Insert the blank diskette into the floppy drive and launch the file;
    - Set the floppy drive as the first boot device in BIOS and boot the computer under consideration.

    If you don't have floppy drive please burn the following .iso file into disk, set the CD drive as your first boot device in BIOS, insert the disk and boot the computer.

    It will allow you to boot Windows.

    Thank you.
