    Acronis True Image Echo Server with universal restore. When try to convert .tib file to Microsoft Virtual PC, got error message "Selected type of Virtual Machine supports only 32-bit guest operating systems". How can I convert it to .vhd so that I can mount it to Hyper-V. Thanks.

    It currently doesn't support converting to vhd for 64bit OSes. According to a posting from Acronis support to another thread back in April (do a search to find it) supposedly the next version will support this. I personally find this to be a major failure as many servers are now running 64bit OSes. The only way to get the OS back is to run a restore. Of course if you are running Hyper-V you apparently can't use the recovery CD within hyper-v so you have to mount the vhd in an exisitng vhd and use the full windows ti there to restore to the drive.
