    OS selector 8.0 :

    2 HDD : HDD1 (windows 9:cool: & HDD2 (98 & XP)

    acronis os selector was on HDD2.
    HDD2 is dead (OK that is my business)

    I install Acronis on HDD1 : ok
    BUT it can not see any windows OS (sure because it was hidden somewhere by acronis)

    How can I manage to make windows visible ? (I still have the OS wizard but do not know which file I have to put on)

    Please accept our apologies for your inconvenience.

    Please try to run Disk Administrator and unhide all partitions. Then please reboot your computer and let Acronis OS Selector to detect your Windows 98 operating system.

    PMFJI, this fixed the problem for me, but I *don't* want my win98 partition visible from within Win XP. BootMagic (part of PartitionMagic) manages this, but I want to move away from Symantec and Acronis' OS selector can be installed in an NTFS partition (Bootmagic must be installed in a FAT16/32 partition).

    Can this be sorted at all?

    TIA,

    Guy

    Hello Guy,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis products (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/).

    In order to answer your question we need some diagnostic information. Please download Acronis Report utility available at http://www.acronis.com/files/support/AcronisReport.exe and run it, create a report and send it to support@acronis.com. This would provide us with detailed information on the hard disk partition structure.

    Please include the link to this thread in your request.

    Thank you.
