  • Acronis True Image Home 2012


  1. In Acronis True Image Home 2012, you start a Try&Decide session and specify a non-system partition to store the changes;
  2. Then, during the Try&Decide session, you do a hard reboot of the system;
  3. As a result, the system is unbootable.


This is a known issue.

If the changes in a Try&Decide session are stored on a non-system partition, a hard reboot will corrupt the changes and make the system unbootable.


The issue is only with having a non-system partition as storage for the Try&Decide changes.

If you specify the system partition as storage for the Try&Decide changes, the issue will not occur.
