None that I'm aware of

Those Recovery Disc's are Slipstreamed and made but as you already have Acronis you can use that to make a Disc that can be reloaded in the event of something happening.

The Systems that come with the ability to burn a Recovery Disc don't do a Bit by Bit image of even the recovery Partition.

Shadow Protect backs up at the sector level, and can do a hardware independent restore.

Acronis should be able to do the trick

If you have the acronis bootcd, you can make the image fit on cd/dvd's.

start the pc with acronis and make the image by selecting your dvd-drive and check that acronis will split the .tib files in an amount that fits the dvd.

To restore it is very much the same: boot and restore from cd/dvd

I haven't tried it before myself and just mayby you cannot take the acronis cd out, then i suggest to make a "bootcd" on a usb-stick
