Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

I am using the trial version of acronis 2009 home. I have windows xp home on a Compaq pc and another computer with Vista premium. With vista I have no problems restoring an image. With xp home I can not restore the image. The xp computer came with software installed and no disk. I made a boot disk using acronis and it will not load. Please help. Thanks

Answers :


Please try to check if your acronis 2009 installer is well installed and it supports XP version

You need a windows xp image disk program. One program I think of off the top of my head is Nero or Roxio.
