but this one is about to drive me around the bend. It refuses to play
nice with full disk encryption. I've tried both Truecrypt 6.2a and
With both of them, the setup works like a charm. The test in Truecrypt
goes fine and it start encrypting. The same goes for CompuSec. The first
reboot I set the password and out of old habit I choose encrypting
before booting. When encryption is done in both programs, if I then
reboot the computer it tells me operating system not found. I can boot
the system with the rescue CD from Truecrypt and it boots and runs fine
without errors or warnings
With Truecrypt I've tried different approaches from full disk
encryption, to just the windows partition. I've tried to set up
multiboot if the restore function is causing problems. I've disabled
Norman Security Suite, but if it was causing a problem, the test would
have failed since it would have replaced the boot loader with the
original one. Last year I encrypted a large portable with 17' screen and
dual drives from FS. With it there was not a problem.
Thanks to Clonezilla and backups, I'm not giving up yet, but I really
need some advice. BIOS has very little settings, but I've notice one
Executable Bit. I'm now trying to disable it. I'm not getting my hopes
up high, though.
How do I get this laptop to use full disk encryption?
