Acronis Computer Restart Is Required

I have never seen 'reboot required' when using the Acronis USB Rescue Media. Please ensure that you have made a full disk backup of your main OS drive in the computer where you are doing the clone and of the source NVMe disk if this is different to the OS drive. During the installation, the Acronis key is generated, used to sign the snapapi module, and registered as a Machine Owner Key (MOK). Once the installation is completed, the user should restart the system and enroll the key by using the password provided by the setup program. You run any of the listed Acronis products in Windows to do cloning of one local hard disk drive to another local one; After going through the Disk Clone or Restore wizard you click Proceed at the final screen; Acronis product reboots in Windows Native Mode to perform the cloning or restore. For Windows 10 you have to go into Start-Settings-Update & Security, Recovery (left pane), Advanced Startup-Restart Now. After boot select Troubleshoot, Advanced Options, UEFI Firmware Settings, Restart. After restart BIOS settings are displayed. In BIOS boot tab all I did was disable Fast Boot, as Acronis was already #1 in boot order. After saving and exiting BIOS settings my laptop booted into the Acronis clone operation.

Required

Acronis product reboots in Windows Native Mode, but the cloning or restore process finishes in a few seconds with no result

There is any type of USB storage device attached to the machine during the cloning or restore (USB hard drive, card reader, printer, anything that has card slots etc).

Solution

Temporarily detach any USB storage device that is plugged in. Perform the cloning or restore with the USB storage device detached.

If you have an inbuilt card reader, then disable it through Windows Device Manager:

  1. Hit Win-R to get to the command prompt;
  2. Type in devmgmt.msc and hit Enter;
  3. In the Device Manager window locate your card reader (it probably starts with letters SD, MMC etc);
  4. Right-click on the card reader and select Disable.

Also, as a workaround, you can try performing the same operation from Acronis Bootable Rescue Media.

More information

The issue is only with cloning or restore of one local hard disk to another local hard disk. If you intend to clone or restore the local hard disk to an external USB one, it is safe to do so.

One of the known causes of the above described behavior is an issue with scheduling the requested operation in the Windows registry.

  7. Delete autopart.exe from the text box
    Do not delete anything else, nor add anything. Just remove the autopart.exe. Otherwise the computer may become unbootable.

    See how the window from our examples above should look like after we delete autopart.exe:

  8. Click OK to save changes
  9. Launch Acronis Disk Director and reattempt the operation. If a computer reboot is requested, accept and reboot the computer. See if the operation now runs successfully.
