    One of my comps has XP and Mandriva on a single HDD with GRUB as the bootloader. I have been using Ghost 9 for imaging XP but it is being suggested that if I do a restore the comp will not then boot - missing ntldr.

    For obvious reasons I don't want to suck it and see, so what would the position be if I get Acronis TI?

    I dual boot WinXP and Ubuntu 7.10 with grub as the bootloader. These are on a single drive with separate partitions for WinXP, Linux, swap, and FAT32 for storage.

    I use TI-10 to image this hard drive and have restored the entire drive, individual partitions, and individual folders/files without any problem. I don't know what ntldr is but my computer has always booted after a restore (and I have done a lot of restores).

    Thanks very much for that reassurance. FYI ntldr is a system file used by XP in the boot process.

    It may be of course that my informant is up a gum tree, and a Ghost restore would work OK - it has done in every other scenario. Just can't think of a way to find out without first shelling out for TI o_O
