    Question-

    I made a custom ISO with my image on cd. Is there any switches I can put in the cfg file that would automatily start the recovery on boot up?


    Thanks

    Your PC will boot from the first bootable device listed in the BIOS boot order, unless you override it with the Boot Options function key at bootup.

    yes I know.

    What I mean is in the f11.cfg file in the recovery manager folder (of the recovery media)

    Code:
    [start]
    echo Starting Acronis True Image...
    initrd ramdisk.dat /s
    kernel kernel.dat quiet
    quiet on
    mbrcrcs on
    vga vesa
    
    [continue]
    sysboot /active
    
    [bootmgr]
    echo Press F11 for Acronis Startup Recovery Manager...
    default continue
    delay 30
    bootmenu 389
    What other switches/options are there?

    You would probably need to create a "One-Click Restore" CD. There aren't any options you can add to the "f11.cfg" file to get the feature you want. A different version of the menu file is used for CDs and flashdrives.

    Are you trying to restore an entire disk image or just a partition image?

    How large is the image file?

    I am just really trying to have fun with it and learn it. I know it is great working product, but I see a config file and I have to play with it. :) I am using 11 echo enterprsie. Can I make a 1 click restore with that?

    Thanks
