Proper Procedure of Getting Rid of Old Backups | Acronis Forum
Please check that you are using the latest build for ATIH and have created the Acronis bootable Rescue Media from this build version or created the rescue media from the latest.
ISO file from your Acronis account. You may need to create the Windows PE version of the Rescue Media if the standard Linux based media continues to give you this video mode error. The problem from this is that it’s designed for Windows where the system will start with the built in CPU graphics to save power and then swap to the dedicated graphics on the fly when more intgensive graphics items call on it.
Unfortunately, Linux doesn’t handle this well. Here’s a run-down of Optimus MVP LogViewer MVP Google Drive Cleanup Utility Cloning Correctly Clone vs Backup Community Tools Contact Support Product Documentation Common OEM Drivers.
I found an alternative solution. I have the same model Probook that was just received and got here because of the same problem.
I am actually using Acronis but my objective is to make a static copy of the SSD or to restore to one. Try going into the Probook Setup using F10 while it is powering on and then do the following steps:. Use Esc to jump to the setup exit menu and affirm that you want to save and exit. Let the laptop begin to reboot and use F10 to get back into the Setup. Now go to the Advance group and select Boot Options. Scroll down to where you can select the boot order.
Again use Esc to hyperjump to the exit menu and save the changes. You can hit Esc when the BIOs presents a new message in the lower left of the screen. This gives you a startup menu that includes BootMenu F9. From there you can pick what you want to boot. Only problem is that when I tried it, I got the same result as option 2 below. After you are done with the Acronis boot media, you can put it back to the Secure Boot option, if you feel that is important for security.
The solution is to enter bios, disable secure boot enabling legacy boot , then the Acronis USB will successfully boot. I just bought the newest acronis true image and updated to the most recent build. Acronis are you paying attention? We need a fix now, instead of jumping thru hurdles. Thank you for your posting! If the issue still reproduces in your environment, we’d ask you to open a support ticket, so that our engineers can analyze the diagnostic information from your particular system and find the root cause.
I went ahead and did only to find this problem again. The issue is already known and a workaround has already been found by another user. I’m asking for you to address this issue, so we don’t have to do an extra step, or at least recognize the issue and make it known to unsuspecting users so they don’t go through the same hurdles as we did.
In reply to I found an by David Braun. I did three more things, and now the David Braun fix as above works on this machine. Whether this makes the machine fall back to the internal HDD or not depends on timing. Which of these things is critical, I don’t know. I did them all, and now the machine boots to the Acronis disk. I am going to start a new thread to address my specific situation, but it’s related to this topic, so it may be helpful to address it here as well I’d certainly appreciate any help if anyone else has encountered and solved the same problem.
I have tried cloning and restoring from a full backup. When I try to boot from my Acronis disk, I get the “Video mode setup error” referenced above. I can disable secureboot and enable legacy support as suggested above, but, while this lets me boot from the disk into Acronis, if I try either to clone the HDD or restore from a full backup onto the SSD, I get a warning message stating that when the operation completes the system will not be able to boot from the destination disk.
However, the only way I can get Acronis to boot from the disk is to disable secureboot and enable legacy support. If I A leave secureboot enabled or B disable both secureboot and legacy support, then I’m back to Acronis not booting due to the “Video mode setup error.
I have also tried creating a Windows PE version of the rescue media to no avail. I downloaded and installed the Windows 10 ADK and attempted to create new rescue media, but after a few minutes I get the error message: “The device is busy. You will also get a log from the script showing any issues if any arise. This error is only because the laptop has TWO video cards and there is a very easy fix.
Save and Exit. Ryan’s solution may well work I haven’t tried it , and it sounds simply enough to be worth a try, but I was able to resolve the issues I was having by creating and using a linux-based recovery media usb drive. By creating and using a linux-based recovery media usb drive , I was able to get my computer to boot into Acronis without altering or disabling secureboot.
According to all the messages in Acronis, the operation completed successfully. I did have to uninstall and reinstall a couple drivers one for the touch-pad and one related to audio , but I believe that had more to do with security updates from HP.
In any event, my laptop has been working correctly with the new SSD installed for several months now. This solved the video problem for me after three days of trying to back up my new laptop. Thank you! I have a Lenovo X1 Extreme with both integrated and discrete Ti video cards. Select an item by using the keyboard: 1. Acronis True image bit , 2. Acronis System report. The USB drive was read for a bit and then nothing happened – the screen stayed black.
It seemed Acronis has loaded but couldn’t appear on the laptop’s screen. After that, I could reboot only by holding the power key. Connecting to an external monitor through different cables didn’t matter – still black screen. I really dont know what to do i have disable one of my 2 GPU and only using the intel one, and got the same error also i have a lenovo legion Y and dont know what to do i can go to advance setup on BIOS.
My main language is Spanish so i barely understand the guy who talk about optimus and the last guy who post here Waiting for a response thanks in advance. Now i have solved the problem. The most easy way is:Take an old monitor 12″ or 13″ with low resolution x Make your bootmedium and than it works perfect with the original monitor.

Hello Herbert! Have you tried with the MVP media builder? If yes, but the issue still persists, I’d suggest opening a support ticket, so that our engineers can help. Thanks to everyone who posted their findings. I was able to finally get Acronis True Image to backup the factory-sealed image on my new Alienware m15 using the steps below. Change to AHCI. Press F10 to save settings and reboot. Now, immediately press F12 repeatedly to get the Boot Menu. Select Option 2 for Acronis True Image.
Backup the Disk. Change to UEFI. Change to Disabled. David, I think 1 and 2 were key. Double check without switching to legacy. In some systems, to get a USB to boot you do have a one have legacy on, but then you want to make sure youre using the one time boot menu to still boot the USB in uefi mode. Authored on.
