New User of Acronis True Image 11 (build 8,053), on Vista Home Premium. Trying to create self-booting rescue disk. BACKGROUND: New Vista desktop was corrupted by using the Try and Decide function in TI 11 (retail box). I was trying installation of new software in safe zone (Roxio easy Creator 10), but to complete installation needed to reboot, so first hit the Try and Decide "apply" button. Knew from documentation that should not re-boot until "apply" function completed, but computer kept processing for 9 hours and finally I gave up and rebooted - ended up with corruption. Successfully restored from TI backup file, but had to get to it through windows and TI install disk. The disk I previously creating using the Acronis "bootable rescue media" utility booted up to a screen offering Cleanser, Windows and TI full program - but no way to select any of them as the wireless keyboard and mouse would not function. F11 also not function so could not use Acronis posted work-around to edit the "quiet acpi = off noapic" script. VistaPE CD FAILURE Gave up on Acronis utility to create bootable disk and found "Beginner's Guide to Creating a VistaPE CD" and followed steps. Down-loaded WinBuilder, and set it to work with original MS Vista Home Premium disk - but it gave error "fltmgr.sys not found, Please install latest SP" I have all "important" Vista updates. Search could not find missing file on Vista disk or in C:\ drive. WinBuilder chose to exit, wiping out project. Started over to try my luck with WAIK. Also down-loaded ImgBurn. Down-loaed and burned *.img file to DVD. When went to set up WAIK from the DVD got error message: "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package" Would greatly appreciate advice on what I can do to rectify. Will happily supply whatever other info you might need to help me resolve this.
