    I boot my machine and the OS Selector menu comes up. I insert the system install cd into drive and after it is recognized I set properties on it's icon. I then boot that icon. When the machine reboots to start install it asks whether to boot from cd and I hit the enter key to boot from CD. It then begins the install. When it gets to a certain point in the install it reboots and this is where I am confused. Should I hit the enter key and boot from the cd again or wait until the os selector menu reappears and boot the icon again? Would appreciate any assistance and correction of my interpretation of the instructions. Thanks

    Hello catman915,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    PLease be aware that if you install a new operating system then it will rewrite the MBR of your hard drive, so Acronis OS Selector will not load. That is why you will not need to boot from the CD. The installation procedure will automatically proceed with the booting process.

    After the installation is finished you will need only to activate Acronis OS Selector once again. It should detect the newly installed operating system without any issues.

    Thank you.
