The problem I am having is that I am currently using windows XP and acronis TI 11 home. I have backed up my OS to the acronis secure zone. Which I can acess when pressing F11 at bootup with the activated acronis startup recovery manager. I knwo that activating the startup recovery manager modifies the MBR to allow F11 at bootup. But, I ran into a problem yesterday that when I also installed Vista onto my second partition, the vista bootloader takes over. So, that was not a problem. So, now when my pc booted , I lost the F11 function becasue the bootloader was rewritten, But I had access to the dual boot menu from vista. Letting me choose which OS i wanted to boot to (XP or Vista). So, I booted to vista. Then had the idea that since vista had the new bootloader, i will install acronis on my vista os and then reactivate the startup recovery manager rewriting the bootloader. BUT, Did not work. Does anybody knwo how to do this. I want to Have a Dual booting setup using xp and vista, BUT with the f11 option prior to choosing which os to boot to. Is this possible with acronis TI 11? BTW I have the intel p965 chipset with RAID 0 for my OS's and using F11 durin just my xp install, prior to dual boot. The linux based recovery manager had no problem detecting my RAID 0 setup on the intel matrix controller. But yeah, that still does not help me figure out how to get F11 prior to dual booting Vista and XP. HAHA, also, i found a bug in the software. When you activate the startup recovery manager the "F11". My pc wont allow me to boot if I have a USB external HD plugged in. It goes through a continues reboot after teh "F11" is displayed. Once the USB HD is unplugged, all boots fine.
