I have a Debian Linux box with a software mirror using mdadm.  I would like to image this machine and restore it to the same hardware using Acronis backup and recovery.  Has anyone had any success imaging a linux box with a software mirror?  Every time I have restored the image I created (same hardware) I get a unable to boot error.
