I am not really sure what you are asking.  Are you talking about a single workstation with multiple drives and a dual boot configuration?  With acronis you can select to backup any drive and partition that is seen by either the Windows OS running the software or the OS that runs from an acronis boot cd.

When you run the wizard you get to a point where it displays a gui that lets you select that drives you want to backup.  Just be sure to select the desired drives and partitions.

I hope that helps.  If you need more help please try to  clarify what you are trying to accomplish.

You are planning to get complex backup image that will take backup of several HDDs and partitions on them. Yes, you can backup multiple volumes into single backup file and restore them to the same configuration when needed. In case you plan to replace the HDDs in future I recommend you taking backups of HDDs separately as this will save much time to you when restoring.
