I currently do not have dvd/cd-witer on my pc with a harddrive that fails more occassionally.I'm planning to create disk image using acronis and take the image file out seperately so I could make bootable CD using other CD writing software,NERO,only possibly available in some pc shops.Can I create bootable CD of my system's image this way if not,how would I go about making without cd writer available?Thanks.
I believe they prompt you for the size of the file in Acronis True Image.
You can then save the image as a set of CDs or as a DVD (or 2). I find it easier to install a second hard drive and create the image on that drive. The files can then be transferred to any medium you like.
The program is supposed to be able to burn the image direct to CDs. Try it, it might work for you. I was using an earlier version and it was a bit touchy.
BTW, load the True Image from a self-booting CD before imaging the C: drive. They say it is OK and will do it anyways (from within Windows) but I prefer using the self-booting disk.
