i've restaged my pc about 6 times soooo i dont want to again so plz i need help..

i have xp, hakintosh, and ubuntu linux all perfect using acronis sooo plz i dont want that to mess up

i want vista rc2 on my pc and im afraid it will crash if i install the vista over acronis...

many times i reinstalled the acronis os selector and it worked great so im wondering if i install vista, somehow get back into xp, and reinstall acronis without any need to restage...

thanks in advance

If you insist on using acronis os selector: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=28506

However ubuntu's grub would also be great to multiboot.

I done the acronis route with the booting thing. It shows my XP as one of the choices and then it shows "
Mysterious Operating System" I click on XP and then you get to Vista's new boot loader. It still works an everything. Acronis is the main boot selector between windows and other, windows shows vista and previous windows

I didnt think Acronis worked with Vista... Didnt for me anyway. had to disable boot loader andx then it would load Vista. Unless you mean you select XP, and you've editted boot.ini in XP to find and boot Vista?
