You can convert Acronis True Image Home 2010 TIB file to Windows backup VHD file to be able to boot from it
This article applies to:
Acronis True Image 2010 backup (TIB) files can be converted to Windows backup VHD files. There are several reasons why Acronis recommends doing this:
(!) If you are going to boot from the converted VHD file, it must contain either Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise Edition.
(!) If you are going to mount the VHD file in Windows 7, there can be non-system Windows partitions.
(!) Any changes you make to the booted or mounted VHD file are saved to it. If you boot from the VHD file and make changes to the data that was not backed up (e.g. delete a file from drive that was not backed up), these changes will affect your live system.
(!) File backup (as opposed to disk/partition backup) cannot be converted to VHD.
(!) You can only boot the same machine the backup of which was converted to VHD. Booting other machines from the same VHD files will fail.
(!) You cannot run the converted VHD file as a virtual machine.
Now you have your VHD file.
