Acronis Lessons Learned

Using Acronis TrueImage Home (2012 version at least) is not as straight forward as they would have you believe.

Past versions seemed to work a lot more seamlessly.

First off Disk Cloning pukes every time if you have a Dell Recovery partition, at least for me. I’ll never try that again – hours wasted.

Secondly, and I’m not sure if this is limited to Windows7 64-bit version or not but restoring a backup of a boot drive onto a new drive doesn’t mean the new drive is bootable. Every way I tried it still left me with an unbeatable drive. I had to use the following MS article and a Windows7 CD in Repair mode to get the drive to boot.


Pain in the ass for sure.

Hyper-V: 4 virtual CPUs in Server 2003 Guest?

Ok, so according to Microsoft, Windows Server 2003 SP2, 32bit can only have 2 Virtual Processors in Hyper-V, but I had mine configured for 4 and it seemed to be working.

Alrighty then.
