BCDW has changed with the latest version of CDShell (and hence,
latest version of UBCD (3.3)). To boot Acronis products do
- Create an ISO of the Acronis product.
- The execution line should be changed to read:
"bcdw Boot /pathto/acronis.iso"
By default, some Acronis product have "Recovery Manager" as
part of the ISO. I'm not 100% sure what this does, but I
think it only works on a system in which you previously
installed their recovery partition, so it may not be useful.
To get a smaller file, you can edit the ISO and remove all files
and directories, then save it. Doing this makes my Acronis ISO
images about the same size they used to be using .wbt or .bif.
TrueImage 8 for me is about 9MB.
Hello again Charles,
So let's continue here... sorry for my previous post which was at the wrong place, obviously
When you say "Create an ISO of the Acronis product", what file (or files) do you exactly choose to make that ISO ?
It might be a bit stupid, but things seemed simple to me with .bif files as I previously did that way wit EasyBoot. And it worked fine.
Can you still use "Recovery Manager" if you remove that part. This point is important to me as I use the Recovery Partition (very usefull, indeed).
Is ISO really much bigger if I keep this ?
Here's an excerpt from my modified
menu for Acronis products:
if ($lastKey == key[a]); then bcdw Boot /cba/trueimg.iso
if ($lastKey == key[d]); then bcdw Boot /cba/diskdir.iso
Where do you write this, in custom.scn ?
And do I have to understand that you created a directory called "cba" placed in "Boot" directory and where you put these two .iso ?
Thank you for your kind help anyway,
