No, this is official Lenevo, meaning, run the executable, it will ask you for a folder to extract the files. Final screen says if you want to install the driver (but you're on a spare machine obviously), so uncheck the box.
Then navigate to that folder, and the driver will be in one of the folders (Win7x64, if you want it for Windows 7 64 bits).
Content will be 1 x cat, 2 x sys, 1 x inf file.

Go into the BIOS and change the SATA access mode to IDE.   You should then be able to boot to your restore program and restore your image.    Then turn AHCI back on and all should be well.

If Secure Boot is enabled on the laptop, you'll need to disable it; then you'll be able to boot.
Despite the dire warnings you may see when you disable it, this will NOT cause any boot issues with the OS.

If there's not a Secure Boot option, then that's not the case.    If there is, it may be on a "Security" tab or in the boot options section.    On some systems you'll see this by enabling "legacy boot mode".

Yes, I know it's a chipset driver.   But if you set the SATA mode to IDE then the AHCI drivers won't be a factor in the boot process.

I'm surely confused.  Some "drivers" are needed to boot.  Yes.  But I don't normally think of these as "Windows" drivers.  But realize that I don't know how to differentiate between the two.  Paragon addresses issues like this and looking at their website materials may help shed some light...

Is this system working and you're just trying to get an Acronis rescue disc set to boot?   Or is there a problem booting the system altogether?

And what OS are you using?

If I use adaptive does this mean I need to redo the backup image with paragon and then redo the restore??
