I am using Acronis 8, build 937. I need some help. I have a new Gateway computer. It has one HD, but 2 partitions. C:, which has everything on it, and another partition for disaster recovery. Well, I created an image of the entire HD, including both partitions, onto an external HD. I have all my programs loaded and settings set, so I want to have a backup, incase my HD ever crashes, which has happened on my other computers. Anyways, I installed a brand new internal HD, to test out my image. (I disconnected the current, working HD) I loaded from a boot disk that I made from Acronis. It installed everything, and looked like it would work. It rebooted, but instead of loading up windows, it went strait into Gateway's recovery program. This forces me to reinstall windows and settings, which is obviously exactly what I do NOT want to have to do. Any suggestions? First of all, did I do it correctly to copy my programs and boot drive? Second, if so, should I maybe try again, and NOT copy the second partition with the recovery stuff?
