Alexandre: Your problems 1) and 2) are actually the same issue. Your PC's hardware is not supported in the Linux recovery environment. To resolve this you should log into your account on the Acronis web site and file a trouble report. Often Acronis will be able to point you to driver files that will work with your hardware. Problem 3) was a one-time event. Per the other postings in this thread, it occurs because your Vista installation as delivered started at an offset of 2048 sectors, and when you restored your image file, TrueImage relocated the start of the partition to an offset of 63 sectors. The 63 sector offset has been the standard for many years and now Vista is doing things differently. Now that you have restored the Vista partition with TrueImage and have done a repair, you can restore as often as you like and you should never see the "winload.exe is missing..." error message again.
