Hi all, A somehow very simple question but it's been 2 weeks i am working on it and just reached a point where it's now driving me crazy. I bought Acronis Disk Director 10, three weeks ago and since i'm going through a long nightmare. The main reason why i bouhgt this was that i wanted to set up a dual boot sytem based on the current copy of Windows XP PRO service pack 3 i'm using right now. I would like to use this system as it is at the moment, plus a copy of it but without any IP/internet drivers. This sytem doesn't have any particular tweaks, but features specific software installs i need for my work. If i have to reinstall it from scratch completely on another disk, it's gonna take me a long time to end up with teh same result. I first tried the "copy" function in Os selector, but, every time i tried this, i end up with a process bar for a minute, and then the software quits or crash, and then nothing. Secondly I tried to copy my main system partition to some unallocated space left i had on my main drive. The copy went ok, but once done after a couple of reboots, OS Selector - sytem detection wizzard was unable to recognize this new system partition. I contacted Acronis through their live chat. People were nice, but i had this unpleasant impression to know more the product than them. When i explained my problem, they recommended me to go - again ! - through the reading of the manual, chapter 3.3, section "Copying partition". When i told them that at this point of the manual there were no mention to system duplication for dual boot purpose, but just to sytem or data backups, the chat stoped ! .. They also recommended me to use a new and unnoficial build of Disk Director ... but at this point, i'm super suspicious and wouldn't like to be used as a guinea pig for their business. And ultimately, during another chat, a guy recommended me to fix my MBR, whenever the sytem i have now is running perfectly fine ... Anyway, i'm a bit confused now, and indeed, truely desapointed by this product, but if some of you can suggest a clear step by step tutorial on how to, - either copy my sytem using "os selector" - and therefore suggests a few ideas about WHY this function is not working with me - OR, duplicate my sytem to another partition of the same drive, in order to make it active and recognizable by Os selctor so i can switch in between these 2 copies, i'd be glad to consider their solutions and comments! I've tried to search this forum before, but didn't really find any help. Thanks very much, m.
