OK, Dog. I did this. It created a partition on C (10MB). Then I restarted ATI, and clicked again on "Activate Acronis Startup Manager". It ran through a couple of things, and then returned to the main menu. 1. How can I tell if it's activated? The "Activate Acronis Startup Manager" button is still displaying. 2. If I decide to purchase the full version, will I have to unistall the trial version? It appears there is no way to simply key a registration key.
