Acronis TrueImage v11.0 build 8101 Windows XP Pro SP-3 I used to be able to reboot the host and hit F11 to run the Recovery Manager to perform a restore of the OS partition. That doesn't work anymore. When I reboot and hit F11 when prompted, I get a menu choice to boot normally or load the Recovery Manager. I choose the Recover Manager. The screen blanks and displays "Loading Acronis Recovery Manager ...". In a few seconds, the screen refreshes with the Acronis logo in the upper left corner of the screen and with a "Loading" text string under it. And there it hangs. The Recovery Manager never loads. This used to work before. It also was working long after I applied Service Pack 3 to Windows XP Pro. I tried reinstalling the Recover Manager but that didn't help. I uninstalled TI and then downloaded the latest version and installed it. I used it to install the Recovery Manager, uninstall it, and then reinstall it again. That was in case an install was only partial because of seeing the Recovery Manager already installed. I wanted to force a new install of the Recovery Manager. When I rebooted, hit F11, selected Recovery Manager, it hung at the Acronis logo screen again. I cannot get TI v11 to now load its boot-time Recovery Manager which worked before. My hardware setup is one 160GB IDE drive on an IDE port on the motherboard and a 120GB SATA drive on a SATA port on the motherboard. The OS partition is on the SATA drive so I have the BIOS configured to boot from the SATA drive. The IDE drive is all for the Secure Zone so it has just one partition and only used by TI. The SATA (boot) disk has 2 partitions: the 1st partition is for OS, apps, and data and the 2nd partition is for data files not to be included in backups, like OS images for virtual machines, .iso files of CDs, and immediately accessible backups of a few programs so I don't need to use TI, and also a Download folder where I save downloads for programs that I install on my host. So I have: IDE disk: 1 partition (primary, entire disk, Acronis Secure Zone) SATA disk: 2 partitions - primary (boot) for OS, apps, & data; logical for non-backed up data files. Since this all is outside the OS, nothing in the OS would be affecting Recovery Manager from not loading. The BIOS boots using the SATA drive. The Recovery Manager would have to be installed in the MBR bootstrap area of the SATA drive for it to become the bootstrap loader. I might be able to boot using the install CD but, one, I hear there are sometimes problems doing it that way and, two, I'd rather not have to go hunting for the install CD and would prefer to use the Recovery Manager that usurps the bootstrap loader in the boot disk's MBR.
