Hello Ori,

thank you for your posting!

The thing is, that current versions of Acronis home products don't support multi-product bootable media. Please find more details in the following article.

Thank you.

Hello Anna,

I got the same error and since earlier versions of the software were able to include multiple products on one CD/DVD, for example Version 11 True Image and Disk Director, I was under the impression that this is a real error. The error message requests also to '....reinstall Acronis Bootable Media Builder. So I did that and tried again.

It is probably better to disable multiple products selection in the Bootable Media Builder when this is not supported, or at least include a comment also in the error message. This will potentially save a lot of time reinstalling the product, and the researching the error online.

Thats rediculous.  That was one thing I loved about the prvious versions, having both on one rescue media.  Thats a giant step backwards.

It's possible to have both on one media but they don't make it easy and you need an understanding of WinPE and the AIK.

Seems easy enough to me. I selected Linux, the Acronis files I wanted, selected a raid driver and it ran well and I can load TI or DD.

Please use "AcronisUniversalRestore (e.g. 2018 -> 2019, downloaded from your MyAcronis Account)" to create bootable MEdium with

1) AcronisUniversalRestore (2019 instead of Version 2015)

2) Acronis Trueimage (e.g. ATIH 2019)

3) Acronis Disk Director (e.g. DD 12)

Mygrated a computer from TI2015/DD1 to TI2019/DD12 with errors using "old AcronisUniversalRestore (2015)", but after installing "AcronisUniversalRestore 2019"
(Unix based) Media (with Win Layout) could be created!

to get Mixed Boot Medium for

Acronis True Image Home (ATIH2019),
Acronis DiskDirector (DD12) and
Acronis Universal Restore
(after update from Acronis TI 2015/16/17/18 to 2019 and from DD11 to DD12)

you must download related newest "AcronisUniversalRestore (e.g. Vers. 2019)" from "MyAcronis"

and install "AcronisUniversalRestore" after/together with
Acronis Trueimage Home (e.g. 2019)
DiskDirector (e.g. DD12)
