I followed the instructions on the knowledge base and, after a few extra steps I managed to create a bootable pen drive to start with Acronis True Image. It works, EXCEPT that after selecting the file and locations to backup a partition, a message displays saying I'm using the trial version of the product. But I have the registered version. Can anybody help on this, please?

I think this problem was reported before, but I don't have the thread link handy.

What version and build of TI are you using?

Is it only the flashdrive that says it's the trial version or does it also happen if you create a CD and use it?

I'm using True Image Home 2009, and this only happens when trying to create the flashdrive, I've created a bootable CD with no problems.

And I've tryied searching the knowledge base but couldn't find anything. Thanks

I've used ISOBUSTER to extract the files kernel and ramdisk from the bootable CD, and the result is still the same.

Try the current downloaded ISO file.

When you replaced the files, did you replace the correct ones? The flashdrive has a different file setup than the CD and different filenames.

If you want to try Grub4DOS, it can boot ISO files. It's an easy way to try different ones without having to extract files. Using Grub4DOS to Create a Bootable Drive

The ISO file should be available to download from your Acronis account. Is it not showing up for you? You posted in the other thread so I assume you saw the screenshots I posted.

If the download isn't available, you will have to contact Acronis Support and get them to fix it or send you a download link.

The names of the files on the flashdrive will vary. The menu files have to be examined to find out the names. They're usually something like KERN6.DAT (kernel) and RAMD5.DAT (ramdisk).
