Cannot install Acronis Win 7 disc image on dual booting partition?

I have a Dell M1330 dualbooting Win 7 and $29 Snow Leopard 10.6.3. I used Empire EFI to install SL and EasyBCD.

Everything(except sound) is working on OSX.


I originally formatted the Windows partition as FAT from OSX Disk Utility(and OSX as journaled). I then loaded the Microsoft Win 7 disk and formatted the FAT partition to NTFS.


I then tried to install an Acronis True Image 11 disk image of my tweaked Windows 7 install on the formatted NTFS partition but Acronis wouldn't allow me to select the partition to install it on. It only showed a grayed out(unselectable) OS X partition and not the Windows NTFS partition.


I'm not sure why I can install Win 7 on the partition I installed Win 7 from the Microsoft Win 7 disc. But cannot install the Win 7 disc image on the NTFS partition.


Please help. I'm going nuts.
