    Hi, I am still in the FAQ & the manual so forgive my ignorance.

    I have installed the full ADD 10 (xp pro sp2, laptop, 1 primary c:\ 1 logical d:\). And I made a booting CD yesterday in case of system failure, using the Bootable Rescue Media Builder.

    On such configuration, the OS Selector seems superfluous (I can't really install multi-OS for HD space and RAM reason, knowing that Vista I 'd like to try, will be too big for my machine).

    I am thinking to un-install the OS Selector application (only) but I have a few questions before doing so:

    Q1: Can I still use the recovery CD without the OS selector (yes/no/how). I.e. in case of system failure can I boot from the CD even thought there is not OS selector (sorry if the answer is obvious, I need confirmation if they are related or unrelated).

    Q2: In the Add or Remove programs, there is only the option to remove ADD 10, not to modify or remove only a module. Upon installation it was the choice to install or not OS Selector. How do we proceed to un-install it from the system? not only to turn it off (as it is possible from the OS Selector Window).

    **edit: I don't know if it is related but I have installed the OS Selector on the D:\ could that be the reason it does not show up in the Add or Remove programs?

    The Q2 made me think that and OS selector and the Bootable Rescue Media builder are related, so the former should be present in the system, however, since I had the option to install it or not, I am in doubt.

    Thanks

    When you create the DD CD, you select which programs to include. All the programs you select will be available when you boot the CD. If you include everything, you'll have DD Full, DD Safe and the OSS programs (you may also have TI, if you have TI on your computer).

    OSS does not have to be installed to use the programs from the DD CD.

    Uninstall OSS from OSS. I think you can do this from OSS in Windows. If not, boot to the DD CD and uninstall OSS. OSS won't show up in Add/Remove Programs.

    TI = True Image (the Acronis Disk Imaging program)
