Acronis Home V10 was recommended to me for what I am trying to accomplish. I have a student who is going to college soon the university does not support vista. So we have spent the last several days downgrading the laptop to XP. The machine is operating as it should and I want to be able to allow him to quickly restore XP to the exact state that it is right now. I am not interested in dual boot systems. So with purchasing Home 10, it appears that I can provide a means to restore the XP machine. My problem is I don't find a step/step help file to show me how to do this and the terminology in the user's manual is too foreign to me. I downloaded the Home 10 software and have created a Acronis Bootable Media Builder CD as outlined in Chapter 10 of the users manual. I know that this CD is working because to test the CD, I took it to another machine I don't care about and started the machine with the Acronis Bootable CD installed. When the machine boots up, the Acronis interface becomes active in memory - so I have gotten this far. So with my Acronis Bootable CD in hand and my student's working XP Laptop ready for use, how can I give him the means to be able to restore the laptop just as it sits at this point in time? Thank you.
