I'm trying to restore backup image using Acronis True Image application on Windows 10 64-bit 1909. When application requests reboot of system, I agree, but after reboot, restore is not starting.

Sergey, when you start a restore from within Windows and Acronis does a restart, it is launching a temporary Linux kernel OS to do the restore and this has limitations on the devices it supports, so may fail if you have any RAID devices or NVMe SSD's etc.

I would recommend creating the Windows PE version of the Acronis Rescue Media as described in the KB documents below.  I would expect this to be more reliable.

Ok, thanks! Of course I can restore system using bootable media. And yes - I have NVMe SSD, there's nothing special about it. And I would like to restore from within Windows just because I purchased the software and want to use its features.What are the advantages in this case compared to Windows Backup for example? I started using acronis more than 15 years ago when it was a great program. But over the past few years, I have seen a steady decline in the quality of the program. In addition, there are many competitors offering the same thing for free. I decided to abandon Acronis and use other software. In my case, this is AOMEI Backupper. This software has the same features and it can restore from within Windows
