    Has anybody tested restore Vista partition without fixing BCD?

    I just bought TI 11 upgrade (I now have TI 10) but I have not yet tested restore with Vista (done that with XP couple of times). So when this day comes, I like to be sure I can use Vista after restore.

    Hello,

    Have not tested yet. However from your link and others, someone got a reply from Acronis who said they were aware of the issue and that it would be fixed in the next release. TI 11 being the next release, I would like to know too if it's fixed.

    Regards,
    gkweb.

    I have been using TI 10 w/o any issues. I upgraded to TI 11 yesterday. I created an image of my Vista drive, as I have been doing with TI 10, all went well. I tried to restore the image, all did not go well. It asked for the OS CD. I did the restore from within Vista. I then re-booted to my XP drive and restored the Vista drive back to the "TI 10" image.

    This morning I d/l a new file of TI 11 - repeat the installation process, the back up process, and get the same results - will not restore. I shall leave TI 10 on the machine, it has never failed me either in Vista or XP, and wait for a rising star in the east to tell me it is OK to get an improved version of TI 11 - or not.

    FWIW, I have been using TI 10 build 4942 since it came out - I like it.

    Now if I can only figure out a way to get my 30 dollars back I can have the LARGE pizza for lunch.;)

    Mustang's post (#111) in this thread reports a successful image restoration of a Vista partition without needing a BCD repair.

    I’m old and old fashioned and with that I learned the hard way after years of examples: if it works, don’t fix it! I know that there are issues with perhaps too many installations but TI10 works and I have not noticed anything that attracts me to TI11 except perhaps some challenges. Now if I can fix my cane so I don’t need it!:rolleyes:

    I am old too - you'd think I would learned the ''works don't fix it" deal by now. However, there are times when I just dive off the board w/o looking to see if there is any water in the pool - this is one of those times:oops:

    T10 is alive and well, I have written to Acronis requesting my money back for T11 (like this is gonna happen) and expressing my displeasure with the product.
    10 is a much cooler number than 11 anyway.:cool:

    There is a warranty of Merchantability that vendora cannot waive. Essentially it requires that a product be able to perform the basic functions for which it was offered for sale. If it does not, then you are entitled to a refund under law. There are some variations from state to state on the rights of hte buyer. Try contacting you state's Attorney General's office for more info.

    I decided to write to Acronis and then ''let it go". If I get a refund, fine. If not, then I am out $29.99 and will move on down the road. 11 will be the last version of Acronis True Image I will buy.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.
