Hi, after installing Acronis True Image V. 10 B. 4940 and backing up and restoring my Vista which is on C: partition VISTA don't start. VISTAs Windows-Start-Manager comes up with the message "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File:\windows\system32\winload.exe Status. 0Xc0000225" After hours of examination I think that this problem is caused by True Image. The reason I started to think in this direction is that all datas are on the C disk. There are no physically missing datas especially the winload.exe. I assume that the Windows-Start-Manager causes this problem because something was changed at least the restored files and from this point the WSM can't or won't find the "way through" . This can be fixed with booting from VISTA CD - choosing the language - and at the install screen choosing the repair option. After rebooting the system starts normally. My assumption is that True Image fails to restore the Windows-Start-Manager or whatever because this was not necessary with XP. Any suggestions or ideas Thanks.
