 I have made a boot disk according to mudecrab descriptions on the old forum.

And i have been using it for a couple of years, worked flawlessly.

Now i have a 64bit vista machine which i have formatet (killdisk).

when i plug my usb bootdisk in, i get the acronis splash screen, where i can choose "Acronis True Image Home (full version)" no problem there.

But all im getting is a black screen, it never goes into the "recovery mode" where i can recovery a disk.

 

all that is left on the 64bit machine is the Bios, everything else i format.

As fare as i know the Bios has nothing to do with the 64bit OS, (which is formatet)

 

Why im i not getting to the recovery window?

Im using  trueimage11.8053

You may have to visit BIOS and establish your USB drive as #1 in the boot order.

Your system may not be looking for it during the boot cycle.

 the disk is booting, when i plug my usb bootdisk in, i get the acronis splash screen, where i can choose "Acronis True Image Home (full version)" no problem there.

But when i press the Acronis True Image Home (full version)  i only get a blackscreen, where i should get a window where i get to choose from the different image on the disk.

Try using your TI prepared Rescue Media as the boot device, and then access your backup material.  Sometimes USB booting can get a bit flaky.

Jesper:

In your first post you mentioned "a 64-bit Vista machine". So is this a new computer? If it is, probably TI 11 does not have the required drivers for your new hardware. You could download the trial version of TI Home 2009 from the links on the left, burn a new boot CD and try it to see if the newer version supports your new hardware. Other alternatives are to build a BartPE disk and use it with your TI 11 version.
