TI 18.15560 and DD 12.5 with Win 11 22H1

Good Morning to all. It is my first time here please bear with me.

I am a looong term TI (ver 6 I think) & DD user upgrading each time as a new edition was relased and have just bought a Windows 11 PC.

My new laptop is Dell Vostro 15-3515 with 256GB SSD and a 5TB USB drive (permanently attached and it is this that I would like to partion) Secure Boot is also disabled to enable me to boot from CD\DVD when required.

My queeries are:

True Image 18 (5 pc licence so still got a couple left)

I have read (on the forums) that TI 18 does work with Win 11 (22H1).

Core Isolation is disabled though if given the choice I will not be installing Try & Decide.

Are there any other problems or issues that I should be aware of?

Will I still have to change\rename tib.sys and does this have to be changed back after installation?

(I would like to install TI before updating to Win 11 22h2 to ensure that I can go back to 22h1 if problems with Win 22h2 arise)

Should I install from my original ver 18 (backup) disk then install the update (15560 which is the last update) over the top or would it be OK to just install ver 15560 directly if this is possible? (freshly download from my Acronis acc yesterday)

Disk Director 12

I would like to install DD 12.5 as well (freshly downloaded yesterday from my acc).

Does this work with Win 11? and if so are there any problems\issues I should be aware of?

Or should I look elsewhere for a comparable program?

Once again should I install ver 12 (3 pc licence and still have 1 licence left) from my original disk and then install the update to 12.5 after?

Or just install ver 12.5?

Sorry if a couple of my questions seem basic but it is that long since I clean installed TI and DD and I usually install all updates over the top of existing installation.

Thanks

Ernie

Ernie, welcome to these public User Forums.

Disk Director 12.5 has not been updated for many years and has a number of known limitations for changes that have occurred since it was released!

If you are going to use DD 12.5 then it must be installed before installing ATI 2018, but my personal recommendation would be to forget about DD and to use one of the alternative products available that can do everything and much more than DD.

I would suggest trying the free MiniTool Partition Wizard software which is very good.

For ATI 2018, then download the final build version from your account and install that. 

If you want to enable Core Isolation on Win 11, then you will need to rename tib.sys to allow this.

Thanks very much Steve. I kinda knew that I was pushing it with DD so will take your advice and go for something else.

I will follow your link to Mini Tool. Another program I had a quick look at was Easus Partition Manager. Is this any good? Is there anything more from this compaired to Mini Tool?

Ernie, there are a number of good partition manager tools available where it is really just down to the user preference as to which is best for them.  I have used MiniTool PW for a long time and found it to be very reliable, but I have also used Easeus and AOMEI partition tools and they are equally as good.

The free versions works for what I need them but there are extra bells & whistles for the paid / Pro versions of these tools, i.e. being able to create WinPE bootable media directly from the application.

Thanks Steve

I will go with Mini Tools.

But will I have to re-enable (rename) tib.sys back to original setting?

Sorry to be a pest with what might be stupid questions

If you have currently renamed tib.sys to such as tib.~sys to allow enabling Core Isolation, then you would just need to delete the renamed file and disable Core Isolation before installing ATI 2018 on the new system, then redo the rename of tib.sys before enabling Core Isolation again.

Once again sorry for disturbing you again.

I have just did a regedit search in both (twice) windows and safemode and can find no tib.sys.

Any ideas as to why?

Windows 11 22h1 was installed on my laptop when purchased.

Ernie, tib.sys is only installed when you install ATI 2018 - it is used by Acronis Try & Decide feature but causes Windows Core Isolation to fail to be enabled if present.

Thanks for all you input Steve.

A good reason not to find tib.sys. Will be installing TI later today or tomorrow.
