    I have a dual boot with Windows XP on one drive and Windows 7 on another drive.

    I run TI 2010 on both drives..

    I'm curious to know while in XP can I restore a Windows 7 image from within Windows XP and not have to boot from the DVD...

    There is no particular reason I would have to do that but just wondering if it can be done.

    Thanks

    I would ask on the Acronis forum. May be a little specialised for here.

    cheers, Paul

    I would see no reason why you couldn't do this. Since you are using separate drives for each OS there shouldn't be any interaction between them that should cause any problem with restoring one while operating in the other.

    Yep, no problem, seperate drives or partitions, its not part of the current OS partition. In fact, a good way to think of all other partitions save the current system one, is as data partitions so you can image or restore at will without booting to disc. The exception to that I think would be trying to restore from Windows 7's native image backup.
