I'm guessing that some of us may be having problems due to our specific Bios.
I can get an Acronis recovery to work .. but it takes TWO repair installs from the W7 install DVD.

I cannot perform a recovery if I have a third (Data) partition after the system C partition.
My computer will not even respond to the W7 Install DVD or the Acronis Boot CD as long as I have a third Data partition.

For those as unlucky as me ..
I'm guessing we'll just have to wait for Acronis to catch up and hope they can fix it.

I'm also waiting until I can get an official "final" RTM from M$ .. hopefully in about a week.

In the meantime .. an Acronis Clone to a backup HDD works great.

And how would the BIOS affect either the MBR or the NTFS files structure on the HDD? Why would a third data partition be different? What happens if you add a fourth?

"My computer will not even respond to the W7 Install DVD or the Acronis Boot CD as long as I have a third Data partition."

If the system will not even respond to a W7 install DVD if it has a third data partition the problem(s) on your system have nothing to do with Acronis.

"For those as unlucky as me ..
I'm guessing we'll just have to wait for Acronis to catch up and hope they can fix it."

See above statement, if your system will not respond to a W7 Install DVD there is nothing for Acronis to "fix". The problem lies within your system.

"I'm also waiting until I can get an official "final" RTM from M$ .. hopefully in about a week."

Again, if your system "will not even respond to a W7 Install DVD" how are you planning on installing the RTM?

Whatever the problem is I suggest it is with your system not Acronis. It is your problem to fix not Acronis'.

I suggest you backup your personal data, wipe your drive, re-partition it and re-install.

In the mean-time would you please stop cutting and pasting this same drivel into every thread which has the word "Acronis" in it?

I've used Acronis True Image 11 and 2009 fairly extensively. For me, TI11 had a few problems with earlier builds of Windows 7 (Beta and prior). 2009 had problems up until a few builds after RC. Now they both work correctly (for me).
For SSD users, Acronis is one of a few that allows restoring partition alignment, which is very critical for SSDs. It's not an "option" to select from the program but by restoring the image and then as a second step, restoring MBR and Track 0, the correct partition alignment is restored.
And like others, I tend to boot from "Acronis Recovery Media" and use it that way.

Hi there
I believe you can make it work in build 7600 by changing the name of the program to ti.exe

(only a get around)

Incidentally it will continue to work if you create bootable media and then recover your data by booting the USB drive or CD/DVD. Then just restore your old image to the new disk. You can increase the partition size as well if you need to.

Cheers

Macrium is a nice program and works fine in x64...thanks for those that posted about it. Faster and the image takes up less space as well.

However, it gives two options for creating a recoverty boot disc..which should I use, I tried the linux one but that wouldn't boot on my system.

OH DEAR NOT TRUE AT ALL.


If you put a new hard disk into your computer you can restore an acronis True Image to it without ANY problems -- I've done this zillions of times on laptops for example where I've replaced the crappy 80 / 100 GB installed hard disk with a nice fast 320 GB version.

The only problem you *might* encounter is that the program might not recogniize a hard disk at all if its never been formatted -- in this case just insert a Windows install disk , create a partition and cancel the install or use GPARTED to create an initial partition.

Acronis will then allow you to restore your old image from your backup -- Create the Stand alone bootable recovery program on to an external USB device / CD / DVD.

When restoring you can change the size of the partition too.

Note if you Multi-boot or have a "hidden" small partition restore that as well and make it ACTIVE. Make the rest PRIMARY.

If you don't have a hidden small system partition then make the one you are restoring ACTIVE if its an OS partition or PRIMARY if its just a data partition.

Cheers

Hi Spliff,

Unusual the Macrium Linux recovery cd won't boot. Did you check the cd itself is bootable - on another machine, for example?

Otherwise, you can burn another using Advanced Options >Compatibility.

I seem to recall Miles Ahead downloaded the fully functional Trial version of Macrium - and used the cd from that , which apparently is a slightly newer version.

Jimbo - it didn't work when I tried it. Mind you, it was some time ago, it is an older version of the program , and as you say there could be any number of reasons for that. Cloning was fine though.
