  • Acronis True Image Home 2012


  1. You use GRUB loader on your computer;
  2. You try to activate Startup Recovery Manager and you receive an error message:

    Failed to activate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager.


Acronis Startup Recovery Manager is not compatible with GRUB loader.


(!) This has been fixed. The fix is available in the latest released build of the product. See Installation of the latest update of an Acronis product.

To work around the issue without installing the latest build, you can use Acronis Bootable Rescue Media instead of Startup Recovery Manager. See Acronis True Image Home 2012: Creating Acronis Bootable Media.
