    I am dual booting between XP and Vista and don't want the Acronis boot loader to allow me to choose between programs. I prefer to use the native Windows boot screen to choose which to boot up to. But, I can't get the Acronis boot removed. I don't see it in the Startup menu nor in the msconig. How do I get this removed short of uninstalling?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    You can deactivate Acronis OS Selector within Windows where it is installed or fix the master boot record of the hard drive. You can fix MBR as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    You can also repair the MBR (Master Boot Record) of the hard disk using one of the following methods:

    Windows 95/98/Me – boot from Startup Disk (floppy) and run "fdisk /mbr" command;
    Windows 2000/XP/2003 – boot from Installation Disc (CD) into Recovery Console and run "fixmbr" command.

    This will remove Acronis OS Selector from there.

    Thank you.
