Hello Mac,

We will do our best to resolve the issue you experience.

Please download ISO image based on ISOLinux from your account under Registered Products and create Acronis bootable disc using third-party software. ISOLINUX Bootable Media is usually more up to date than the Acronis Loader one. This is due to the fact a new version of Acronis Bootable Media is uploaded to the website more frequently than regular product updates are released.

ISOLINUX Bootable Media has several boot parameters that may help overcome possible issues with booting and restoring the image. You can also set a specific VGA resolution in the ISOLINUX media if there an issue with the Graphical User Interface (GUI). Check the following article for more details. 

If the ISOLINUX CD works flawless for you, you can update Acronis Startup Recovery Manager in the following way:

Exclude kernel.dat and ramdisk.dat and replace the old ones. The files are located at:

* \Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\kernel.dat

* \Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\ramdisk.dat

After that reactivate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager and see if the issue remains.

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Thank you.

I just encountered the same problem with a Lenovo T60 Thinkpad laptop when trying to back it up using True Image Home 2010. This happened with both a bootable CD and a USB thumb drive, and with or without "acpi=off noacpi" added to the startup parameters.

What finally fixed the problem for me was to disable USB CD and floppy boot support in the Thinkpad BIOS (hold down F1 when turning the computer on). Once that was done, the default True Image configuration without additional startup parameters worked without a hitch.

We are also getting this error when trying to boot to PXE or CD. I do not have a download option for the boot media in my account page.

Login to your account. It's listed on the tab for "Bootable Media".
