I am using the latest ATI 2016 build 6571. With every Acronis update I regularly create a new rescue media bootable USB. It is an ordinary 4 GB USB flash drive FAT32 formatted.
Yesterday I tried to recover from the recent image stored on a HDD in an external USB enclosure. I was not able to boot to Acronis (Linux) interface. I got the message: "Starting Acronis.....", then some message about loader, following by a blank screen. I've been waiting for 5 minutes for interface to come up but a blank screen remained.
With some of previous builds I was able to recover using a bootable USB.
I was able to recover from Acronis program after booting to Windows. After slecting the image, PC restarted to blank screen. Nothing was vissible, no progress bar or anything just a blank screen. However, I noticed that the recovery operation is actually in progrees (by watching the LEDs on HDD enclosure and on the PC). After some 20 minutes it restarted and booted to Windows normally.
I am using Windows 10 Home, X64. The motherboard is Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe, Z77 chipset, 16 GB DDR3.
