    Dear help!

    After installing Windows 7 on a separate drive/partition, I can't see the F11 ( Recovery Manager) option during startup anymore. Anybody having the same ?
    I use Acronis 10 and run on Vista H premium.

    Thank you for your time..

    Hello Geronimo,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image Home!

    When you install any Operating System the MBR (Master Boot Record) is changed. Acronis Startup Recovery Manager also changes this record to appear during the boot sequence.
    Evidently, Windows 7 installation overwrote the previous MBR.

    You have to reactivate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager.

    Thank you.

    Hi Daniel.
    Thanks for your help. I actually had reactivated the Recovery manager but the boot still shows no beautifull F11;-)

    Hello Geronimo1,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image 10.0 Home

    In order to solve the issue you should rewrite MBR. Please download special Acronis utility from. Use it to create a floppy and boot the machine from the floppy.

    If you prefer to a fix MBR using a CD, then please download special Acronis utility from. Use it to create a CD and boot the machine from the CD.

    The MBR will be rewritten once you boot the computer from the created media and confirm that you want to fix the MBR.

    Check the following Microsoft KB article for more information about restoring Windows Boot Loader manually.

    Best regards,

    My Recovery Manager also is not visible, though I am using XP, not Win 7. The secure zone exists and a backup is there that I verified integrity ok.

    This utility to rewrite the MBR sounds promising for me. But I do not OWN a floppy disk anymore. Is this utility available as an ISO image file for a bootable CD that I could burn ?

    Thanks.
