There has been ways some users have been able to make Vista visible to Acronis OS Selector, which sometimes involved begining an install of Windows XP. Here's another solution; sorry if it's been described before. Of course, if you do this, it's at your own risk. It's a simple procedure: After having installed Vista, you can put two files in the root (C:\): ntldr and boot.iniVista will ask you to confirm this procedure. Now ntldr can be found on the i386 folder of a Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows 2003 installation CD. As for boot.ini, simply create it with notepad with the following content: Code: [boot loader] default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Vista" /fastdetect In the above I wrote partition(1), in case your Vista is installed in the first partition. Adjust according to your situation (you could also remove the /fastdetect bit I guess). This should allow Acronis OS Selector to detect Vista and boot it. You don't need to have a previous Windows install on your system: you could install Vista, put the two files above, then install Disk Director and OS Selector on Vista, and reboot. I hope this can help some of you. Please report if it gives any problem. Lets hope Acronis will eventually support Vista in an official manner. We're all wondering if they have already a beta version which works well with Vista.
