    I have two drives and three OS on my computer. I have selected to use Acronis OS selector to boot into my system. All is good, I was just wondering. I Have Acronis downloaded to all my OS. I have activated Acronis OS selector in just one of the systems which works just fine on boot up. My question is when I click on Acronis OS I get a message that says "Acronis OS selector cannot find the necessary configuration files. Please reinstall Acronis OS selector". Am I getting this message because I have not downloaded OS selector to this Partition or system? Like I had said earlier, I have activated Acronis in only one system.

    I don't think that error message is because you have installed OSS in only one Windows.

    Make sure you have the same build installed for booting and installed in Windows (currently build 2,160).

    Have you tried reinstalling OSS from Windows to see if it fixes the problem?

    OSS does not have to be installed into ANY Windows OS. You can just install it from the CD and use the boot menu to select the OS to boot. Installing OSS in Windows just lets your select what you want to boot into when you reboot without having to go through the menu.

    This is true, but after installing Acronis Os selector to the Windows application I was in, all was good. I selected OS selector from the drop down menu and Walla, good to go. It has to be a part of the Windows application you are booted into in order to show the configuration you have. Yes, you only need apply it to one windows app. for it to show a boot menu at boot up, but for it to work as far as showing a boot menu while you are in windows, you still need to have it installed on that installation. All it is going to do is show you your boot menu for your computer. I may not have a clue on what I am talking about, but none the less, it's working. Thanks for your help.
