    hi

    ive been wanting to run the new access 2007 and also the older access 2003 as these are not backwards compatible. So......

    ive created two different version of my winXP (1 with Access 2007/ 1 with 2003) and have used acronis images as backups.

    My main problem is that Acronis OS selector DOES see both partitions with the two different OS on them but only boots the 1st OS even though the 2nd is selected.

    Is it possible to have dual boot system and use the acronis images as backups........ Can u shed some light on this!

    thanks

    Answer: yes

    Question: do you have Acronis True Image installed on one or both operating systems??

    "only boots the 1st OS even though the 2nd is selected."

    1- activate OS selector
    2-Tools, OS Detection Wizard <<<---- did you do this stepo_O
    3-deactivate OS selector. Then you select which Operation system to boot up.

    During the steps 1-3, you will need to "hide" "unhide" "bootable" your Operating Systems to get the desired Windows OS system to boot up.
