When performing a recovery of an Windows XP or 2003 Server system with a change from IDE to AHCI makes the system unbootable after succesfull recovery. To fix this issue, use an older Intel storage driver.
This article applies to:
During the Acronis Universal Restore operation, an Intel driver (RST driver 22.214.171.1243) is used. Intel chipset drivers after version 126.96.36.1996 are not supporting Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. As a result the system is unbootable.
You can work around this issue, using the last compatible driver.
Feel free to contact Acronis Customer Central if you need additional assistance.
