forcepae and Acronis 19
I have an old Dell Inspiron 500m laptop that although almost useless, works well enough for emails and web browsing. I wanted to make a backup with an Acronis 19 CD I have, but it fails with the "forcepae" problem. Pressing the F11 key does indeed bring up the box for you to add "forcepae" but, the box is only presented for a very short time before the boot starts. I wanted to make CD that would work with out having to do this. I searched but did not find any clear solutions that used what I already have. Cut a long story short, I made a fresh CD with the Media Builder using the linux version and added "forcepae forcepae" in the start up parameter box (with out the quotes). You must add it twice with a space between them. Boot from the disk and select the upper 32bit version. It takes a while and then the familiar Acronis True Image 19 box appears. In addition, the graphics are perfect, not garbled as in the old Acronis 12 version I have. I realise not many people will bother with such old machinery, but it may help someone save the days i spent looking for this solution.
