OS Selector problem after installing Linux distro
With Acronis OS Selector installed under Windows Vista x64 and activated, I rebooted my system and installed, from the DVD drive, the Linux distro CentOS 5.3 into its own /boot, /, and /home partitions and I instructed the distro to put its boot loader in the /boot partition and not in the MBR.
Everything went witthout any error and at the end the distribution had me remove the DVD disk and reboot my computer. When I did this the Acronis OS Selector gave me a message about "No configuration file" and "<Enter> to reboot" but no matter what I did I could not reboot into any OS.
Why did this happen ? As explained above the CentOS 5.3 distribution should not have affected the MBR in any way.
I was able to recover and get the Acronis OS Selector to reactivate itself, and was subsequently able to boot back into all my OSs. But that was scary have the boot manager not function on my system.
If anybody can point me out what happened and what I need to do next time so that I do not loose my ability to boot into my OSs, it would be appreciated.
