Jul 24, 2017. Director.v 12.0. 3270 Boot CD. Download Acronis Disk Director Suite 12 (Free) for Windows, Acronis Disk. Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 New!Reorganize your PC for better performance and data protectionAcronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 is a comprehensive workstation partition and disk management suite that combines a number of previous Acronis products.
I've often used Acronis Disk Director (DD) and TrueImage Home (TIH) on an Inspiron 8500 laptop running XP. I've recently bought an Inspiron 1720 laptop running Vista Ultimate. I've installed Acronis Disk Director on the 1720 hard drive and run from that location it seems to work OK.
However, neither DD or TIH work when booting the 1720 from an Acronis bootable CD. When booting DD what actually happens is that an attempt is made to boot the CD, you see 'Acronis loader.' , and for DD Suite you get the usual list of things that you can do with DD (Start DD, OS Selector, etc). But there is no cursor! So you can't actually select any option other than the default selected Disk Director itself. On pressing ENTER you are presented with an error message 'Acronis Disk Director suite has not found any hard disk drives'!
DD and TIH are essential tools for me and any help with why this is happening would be most welcome. Has it got something to do with the Dell recovery system screwing things up - I see there are 4 partitions on my main hard disk 1- EISA Configuration 2- Recovery partition 3- Main C partition 4- MediaDirect partition Thanks for your help. Acronis can't see the drives as the Recovery CD does not have the appropriate Raid (Intel Matrix Storage Manager) drivers. I don't know if you can incorporate the driver into the bootable CD or not.
As for the mouse, I assume you are using a wireless mouse? If so, again the Recovery CD probably does not have the drivers. The Linux based Recovery CD (with its shortage of drivers) is one of the major shortcomings with Acronis. For a backup solution, I have switched to where the Recovery CD is WindowsPE based and I have absolutely no problems.
Hi Rebel9, You got me thinking. I have a desptop with wireless keyboard & mouse. I also have Acronis TIH. [Acronis True Image 11 Home] If I cannot get going with the bootable disk in an eventuality I will be doomed.!
What is the available option in your opinion? Should I then get a wired keyboard & mouse to get the bootable disk working? I would greatly appreciate your thoughts. Hi Rebel9 Thanks for your post. Easynote mx66 driver windows 7. However you may not have understood my original post. I'm not using the Dell Recovery CD - I'm using a bootable CD that you create from Acronis Disk Director.
