Congratulations! That all looks correct now. I trust that you rebooted before creating the screen shots. Now that Vista is booting entirely from its own partition, you can delete the Boot partition. 1. Using Vista Disk Management, delete the D: (Boot) partition. 2. Copy the files from the R: and I: partitions to temporary storage on your external disk. 3. Delete all of the remaining partitions on the disk, leaving only the Vista partition and the rest as unallocated space. Don't forget to delete the extended partition container if you see "Free Space" in the graphic. Next, decide on how much space you want in the Vista partition and how much in the Images partition. 4. Extend or Shrink the Vista partition to its desired size. 5. Create a new I: partition that either fills the rest of the disk or that leaves 100 MB unallocated space after I: for a future Secure Zone *(read ahead to decide if you need a Secure Zone) 6. Copy back any files from the external disk to the I: partition Now you can create a full-disk image of this new layout. That's everything except for creating a Secure Zone and activating the ASRM. You can either try that again, this time from Windows, or wait a couple of days for a new and different approach. Acronis has released a new build for TI 2009 that can boot into the Acronis rescue environment without requiring a Secure Zone at all. They posted the new build yesterday but withdrew it because it had a bug where it wouldn't recognize some people's valid serial numbers. It may be fixed shortly and then you could download it -- your choice. P.S. If you want to keep the boot partition for backup purposes, create an image of it and save the image.
