Hi! I'm hoping that I can get a hand on this problem I'm having this week. I have windows xp pro installed on my active partition. I started to have a problem with windows' interaction with a certain program, and being unable to fix it through a re-install of that software, reg cleaning, etc., I decided it might be time for a windows repair. Prior to that, I installed my image of the partition made by TI, but that image was quite recent, and seems to include whatever errors are causing the software problem I was having. BTW, TI worked flawlessly! Using my original windows disk, I went through the "upgrade", in-place repair of my installation. When the windows repair finished I found myself unable to boot the computer. What happened is an un-ending loop that keeps bringing you to a screen that, among other stuff, says "wiindows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this". The screen then gives choices to boot into safe mode or to 'last good configuration', etc. However, the computer will not boot into any of those modes, it just always brings you back to this same screen. FWIW, right before it stops on this screen, I have seen a very very quick glimpse of the BSOD screen, but way to brief to read any info from it. So what does all of this have to do with True Image? Well, the one other time I had this identical experience was also since I've been using True Image and I am considering whether the problem, post-xp repair, is that Windows doesn't know what to do with the Acronis drivers installed with True Image, and/or can't properly interpret whatever modifications might have been made in the MBR or bootcfg, etc. by the Acronis install, once that XP repair is done. So I'm wondering if any of the Acronis folks here have ever heard of a scenario like this or have come across something like this and can advise? Right now, the only thing I can see is to do a complete re-format of the drive, which is a shame particularly when the Acronis imaging worked so well. I can re-install my most recent TI image, but as I said earlier, that image seems to already include the original problem that led me into all of this. One final consideration, where I could also use some help---If it is something with the Acronis drivers or boot information altered by the Acronis software, it certainly is a consideration to uninstall Acronis prior to the Windows repair. However, I've never had much luck with that, and have had experience with uninstalling Acronis only to find that there seems to be some problem in the boot information that will again cause problems with getting xp running. So, if any of you have observations regarding uninstalling Acronis so that MBR info is re-written in a usable form, it would be appreciated. Sorry if I went on for a bit, just trying to be clear. Thanks.
