    I deleted Acronis True Image 9 from my computer. When I re-boot my computer I still get the message. "Press F11 for Acronis Startup Recovery Manager.

    Also another message comes up after it.
    "Acronis Loader fatal error. Boot Drive (partition not found. Press Enter to try to Boot OS...

    How can I get rid of these messagess and Boot directly to Windows?

    Thank you

    Sounds like you did not remove the Secure Zone/Startup Recovery Manager.
    I’d reinstall TI and try removing the Secure Zone, which should deactivate the Startup Recovery Manager and rewrite your MBR.

    Hello tachacat,

    Alternatively, use the mbrautowrite utility to reset your disk's Master Boot Record to standard as detailed in the Acronis Support sticky titled <Please Read Before You Post>.

    Would that utility reclaim any Secure Zone space if it still existed?

    Hi TheWeaz,

    You are right to point that out because the mbrautowrite utility will reset the MBR but not reclaim the space taken by the associated SZ.

    So, best to do what you advised, which is to reinstall TI and use the Manage Acronis Secure Zone Wizard to remove the SZ. This will return any space previously used by the SZ and reset the MBR.

    Regards
