    I have a Dell with a special boot sector to recognize CTRL+F11 key.
    Will Acronis True Image corrupt this sector with its Secure Zone so that it will recognize F11 during boot process?

    If you enable TrueImage Secure Zone you will forever destroy your Dell's CTL+F11 PC Restore capability......

    Merely creating an Acronis Secure Zone will not affect Dell's Ctrl+F11 feature. However, also choosing to activate the Acronis Startup Recovery Manager WILL overwrite the Master Boot Record, hence preventing access to Dell's special hidden partition.
