    I got this when I turned on my machine this morning. What a shocker. I booted the restore disks, and repaired the OS selector, and reactivated it, and all is well. But what caused this in the first place?

    I defragmented my C drive yesterday, and this was the first reboot since then. Anyone run into this before. I have no errors on my drives that I'm aware of. Chkdsk finds none anyhow. Win XP Pro SP2.

    I get this occasionally, often after a program that upgrades in the background has run - such as Adobe Reader upgrader - and requires a reboot.

    Sometimes after TI9 has run the next reboot comes up with either 'no system disks' or 'No configuration file found'.

    I've just got used to swearing loudly and keeping the boot CD to hand.

    Hello pjiv,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Please be aware that after you have defragmented your hard drive your partition table was changed and Acronis OS Selector fails to detect its system configuration files. So if you encounter such a problem you can solve it by using one of the following workarounds:

    - Re-activate Acronis OS Selector booting from Acronis Bootable Rescue Media. Please take a look at the section 8.1.1 of Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 User's Guide.

    - Repair the Master Boot Record of your hard drive as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Thank you.

    Good to know. Is this pointed out in the manual? This is a big FAQ issue, that's not in the FAQ's.
