Charles, if you are doing a full recovery of a previous Windows 10 installation that you have backed up, then you should be creating and using the Acronis bootable rescue media to do this rather than trying to do it from within Windows 10.

See KB 63226: Acronis True Image 2020: how to create bootable media and KB 59877: Acronis True Image: how to distinguish between UEFI and Legacy BIOS boot modes of Acronis Bootable Media
