    Hi guys,

    I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 on my PC, as I didnt want Linux to alter the Acronis Loader I already have setup I didnt let Linux create a Bootloader (dunno if this was a mistake or not - I'm kinda new to Linux).

    Viewing my hard disk in Acronis True Image shows Linux installed (1 x Linux Swap Partition [1.Gb], 1 x Ext3 [5.2Gb], 1 x Ext3 [3.2Gb]) but I cannot boot Linux as it doesnt show in the Acronis Loader.

    Is there a way to activate the Acronis Loader to recognise the Linux partitions and boot from it?

    Thanks

    Silly new Linux-user not taking time out read the instructions lol :)

    Hello playaz,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Multiboot Managing Software.

    Could you please create Acronis Report in the way described at Acronis Help Post and send it to support@acronis.com along with the link to this thread? This will allow us to give you the most appropriate advice according to your partition layout and the configuration.

    Thank you.
