Hello, I've been using Acronis True Image 11.0 and I had to restore a partition image yesterday. The partition was a Linux OS with the boot loader code installed in the Boot Sector of the partition. When I did the restoration, I identified the partition image (the .tib file) that I wanted to restore. Then, immediately a dialog box opened where I had a choice of restoring a) the partition image, and b) the MBR (Sector 0). I selected the partition image, but not the MBR. (The MBR goes at the beginning of the disk, before the first partition. I didn't want to overwrite that.) After the restoration was complete, I wasn't able to boot into the Linux partition. I had to manually re-install the boot loader on the Boot Sector before I was able to boot. Question: When Acronis 11.0 makes a partition image, does it create a separate image the Boot Sector of the partition in addition to the files and directories of the partition? Should I have selected to restore the "MBR" in addition to restoring the partition itself? I didn't want to overwrite the MBR at the beginning of the disk; I only wanted to restore the Boot Sector at the beginning of the Linux partition. The terminology "MBR" is a bit misleading. I did want to restore the Boot Sector, but I didn't want to overwrite the MBR.
