Acronis adapts TrueImage to do P2V migrations

Acronis has just launched TrueImage 9.1 Workstation, Server and Enterprise.

This new version features the new Acronis Universal Restore option, able to restore a saved computer image on a different hardware (included a virtual machine), modifying on the fly the HAL and other drivers needed by your operating system:

  1. Boot into our recovery environment
  2. Select the image to restore and the replacement system
  3. Acronis Universal Restore initiates the restore process
  4. Acronis Universal Restore detects the hardware and installs drivers
    • The product detects the machine type and installs appropriate drivers for Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL)
    • The product detects hard disk controllers (SCSI and IDE)
    • The product prompts you for driver locations
  5. The machine reboots and Acronis Universal Restore begins mini-setup to load drivers into the Operating System.
