    Assume a system has the following:

    > More than one disk
    > More than one installed OS
    > Disk Director 10
    > Default OS is Windows XP on disk_1 C:
    > Other OS installed on disk_2 D:

    Assume that DD10 is installed in the Program Folder of the default OS. In this example that would be C:\Program Files\Acronis\...

    Now assume that the system disk_1 goes bad (mechanical or electrical fault).

    If the disk on which DD10 is installed goes bad how do you get into DD10 "OS Selector" to activate it so that you can boot into the OS on disk_2?

    You should create Bootable media with ADD.

    If something wrong happens with your first hard drive you need to boot your computer up with this media, reactivate OS Selector and boot your second OS

    OK Thanks Vart.

    I assume that this process works faultlessly.... if the system disk goes down it is a bit late to find that your recovery plan resembles Swiss cheese ;)
