Acronis total dirt OS selector - kills hard drives!

<< < (6/6)

I have not done dual booting in ages. I find it safer to use VMWare or get a separate desktop for each OS I want to install. I have one desktop for Windows XP and one for Ubuntu Linux.

I've learnt from experience not to trust Acronis products. Tried TrueImage and it refused to restore a 'verified' disk image. Even when the restore worked it would mess up the Windows SID so Vista wouldn't load. I have since started using Ghost/DriveImage. The Vista bootloader (bcdedit) is a lot more capable and there are some nice Gui's to use it  (EasyBcd, Vista boot pro), if that works for you.
