Acronis only have themselves to blame.. theyve been ditched!!!! There are many softwar developers making available software to work with Vista, afterall, its been no big secret!!! Get it out before the competition does to gain market share... oh no, not acronis!!! As to why they couldnt have a OSS solution for Vista.. which although not officially retailing yet, lucky beta testers and msdn customers do have thier own versions, myself one of them!!! What is rather odd, is that I was able to multi boot Vista and 2 other XPs fine with the pre-rtm release, but not with the official, for some reason... Anyway, I was determined to find something that would do the trick, an although not as "pretty" as OSS, BootIt Next Generation has come to my aid, and does exactly what I need!!! I now have a multidisk system, with Vista, XP Pro & XP64 all happily living together, completely unaware of each other existance, and multi-booting in perfect harmony!!! However, I would advise its not for the average user, as its configuration is more hands on, and you must setup and configure partitions manually... but the end result is just what I was after!!! I will be keeping an eye to see what Acronis have to offer in the new year, but to be honest, OSS isnt the most flexible of utilities, if its not done their way, it simply cant be done at all.. and I dont like that approach, Ive not usead any of the so called "features" OSS had to offer, as they seemed rather pointless - and as a simple boot manager, it has now just failed with flying colours!!! BootIt works at the low level of disk/partition structure, so really, it doesnt matter what OS or file system the partitions are made of, it simply doesnt care!!!
