Thanks for your reply. I have contacted Acronis. I will post what they say. All the other programs on the Intel install disks from other vendors work as they should; only the Acronis product asks for a nonexistent activation number.
Yeah I have the same Board, and the same issue, I really wanted to use the software, but no dice, I feel cheated, I hope someone can tell me where the number is , or provide one, PLEASE:)
Free Seagate Diskwizard is Acronis:
How to use free Seagate/Maxtor DiskWizard(=Acronis v.11) on ANY drive: Solution is when the “No Seagate/Maxtor drive detected error” screen appears, press and hold the “Alt” key, then type the two letters “to” (for tech override), then click the “OK” button. Then DiskWizard opens fine. Have an external Seagate drive and when its not attached this is the workaround solution for DiskWizard to open. Direct from the Seagate tech support forum. Plus you can restore "mount" the backup image as another drive letter and copy specific files/folders. Also make sure you create the "bootable CD" which gives you a bootable restore/backup option.

No, what I have IS Acronis OEM version......... and when you click on the acronis ICON it asks for a serial one that supposedly came with the motherboard, Well I still have the box , reciept and whole nine yards........ No activation key......... I just recently had to reformat, and thats when I decided to try it... (I had caught a virus, and thought hey why not use this for future reference...........) Any how, I still have it on my machine, with hopes someone has the missing number, or I will just continue to write Intel till, either they send me a working code, or I get tired of the excuses, and PAY ANOTHER Company for a simular program ......... Usually intel is the best, but this time.......... Bad service, means the next generation of AMD boards are starting to look nice, sorry intel, but don't put it on your bundle, and then trick us ......God Acronis installs all types of system files and everything, even some kind of net adaptor,................ Thanks but Acronis , IS ACRONIS
