Acronis' Disk Director partition management program includes a boot loader application known as Acronis OS Selector. Acronis OS Selector installs itself on the hard drive so that the computer boots directly to Acronis OS Selector each time it boots. Users can select one of the different installed operating systems from the boot loader's graphical menu. If you don't want Acronis boot loader installed on your hard drive, you can deactive it. Deactivating the OS Selector removes it from the boot sector of your hard drive.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Click "Start," "All Programs," "Acronis," "Disk Director" and then click "Acronis OS Selector." If the operating system you're currently using doesn't have the Acronis OS Selector application installed, you can also restart your computer and use the boot loader application that appears at start-up.

  2. 2

    Click the "Tools" menu at the top of the Acronis OS Selector application in Windows or the boot loader that appears when you start your computer.

  3. 3

    Click "Deactivate OS Selector" in the tools menu.

  4. 4

    Select a default operating system to boot by clicking it in the dialogue that appears.

Tips and warnings

  • You can install the Acronis boot loader later by clicking the "Activate Boot Loader" option in the tools menu of the Acronis OS Selector application in Windows.
