I looked through your forums first to see if this was already answered, but I couldn't find a post that directly addressed this question so I thought I'd create a topic.
I do computer repairs and one of the most common things I see is customers bringing in their computers where they have a bad hard drive and we have to replace it. The problem is that on many systems (HP's for example) that splash screen that says "F11 System Recovery" still pops up on boot up and many customers still want the ability to recover their systems on their own after we replace the drive.
Is there a way to use Acronis to create the same recovery options that originally existed on the machine? By this I mean, the user would just have to hit F11 when they see that HP screen and it would start recovering the system?
If so, what would I be required to do? Is there a way to configure what is supposed to happen when a user sees that splash screen on start up? Is that splash screen stored in the motherboard and I need to edit the code that gets executed when someone hits F11? Is there a way to save the Acronis image to another partition and point the HP F11 key (or Toshiba F11 key, Gateway F11 key, etc) to the new Acronis recovery manager?
I'm totally new to Acronis so I'm sorry if these are beginners questions but I'd really like to give our store the ability to perform recovery partition repairs and this seemed like the right place to start.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me here,
