I have tried to create a recovery cd from both the 'Home' selection menu and from a downloaded ISO file from Acronis. The closest I came to booting was from the ISO file when I got the: loading kernal.dat.... isolinux: disc error 32 ax=4280 drive 9F otherwise reboot does not see recovery disk in boot up. Any ideas? So, just to make sure I did not have other problems I created a recovery cd from Paragon and this created with no problems! I am ready to give up on Acronis.
