Dual boot using Acronis OS selector home 2011

Hi
I'm new to multi booting and navigating the way forward to install XP pro.32, XPpro.64, Win7 pro.64. on my Dell precision t3500.
I have at my disposal (not installed) 'licenced' Acronis disc director home 2011, it includes "OS Selector". Is this programme good stuff or is it more trouble than its worth ?
From posts back in 2009 there was trouble in hand, so what about 2011 ?
Look forward to hearing your experiences.
Thanks fellows
Dominic

It's good when it works, but I would not use it.

One of the best boot managers in my opinion is still Boot It, rock solid and never failed me.http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/boo...generation.htm

Acronis users - Upgrade to Acronis Home 2011
Hi there For current Acronis users the upgrade to 2011 IMO is well worth the small price (approx 25 EUR). New USB 3.0 support, direct conversion of .tib into .vhd files (great for P2V and V2P conversions of Virtual Machines) plus all the other stuff you would expect from a robust backup...
