(For the administrators: I haven't logged in in a very long time, and I encountered a boo boo. My name, Bold_Fortune, was taken...of course by me, a very long time ago. Since my E-mail address is different now then back when I first joined Wilders, I couldn't get a new password sent to me. So I joined again under an assumed name, NotBold_Fortune...LOL. Can I have my name back please?) Anyway, back to the reason I'm here. I had been reading a couple of threads about the subject I am posting about: When trying to Explore an image this happens... "The software you are installing for this hardware: Generic volume has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. Cannot assign a drive letter to a partition from image archive." I don't know if anyone has uncovered a solution to this problem. From what I had been reading on the other two threads about this subject (which are now closed, and that is why I started this new thread) no one has as yet. I'm wondering which Windows files does Acronis True Image depend upon? Is there a list somewhere of Windows files called upon by Acronis during the Explore Image Process? I can pinpoint a few INF files it touches upon in C:\WINDOWS\inf. What, if any, system32 files does it call upon? The reason I ask, and the reason I think this problem is Windows file related, is, I delete many files from my Windows XP installation. If I return to an image of a fresh install of XP, I don't receive that error message at all. Everything goes smooth as a baby's bottom. Yet, if I try it on images where certain files are removed from my XP installation...error, error, error. So that's why I ask which Windows files is Acronis True Image dependent upon? Anyway, from what I've been experiencing, as outlined above, this seems like a good place to look for the solution. Hope this helps, and I hope you at Acronis can help me with that file dependency list. I sure would like to take a look at it. Thanks.
