Getting 0xe0050001 Endpint Encryption for PC is not installed after succesfully removing EEPC. Not sure if this was the best thing to do. You see originally had the 92h Safeboot is corrupted error. User is believed to have malware prior to the 92h error. My intent was to remove encryption and Mcafee to see if it will boot up normally so I can scan the machine for malware/viruses.
I'm still able to mount the drive just fine
If you removed succesfully & hdd is decrypted.
than simply FIXMBR, and all will be fine.
You can also restore Original MBR with the help of Safetech/wintech & .sdb file
sounds like you have TDSS rootkit installed :-(
I think you'll have to boot off something like WinPE to successfuly flush the MBR - the rootkit will put its mbr back when you boot up again though.
I first tried Restore MBR. There's not an option for FIXMBR. The restore mbr gives me the same error message after restart. Endpoint Encryption is not installed. The other option I tried is Set safe original MBR but it fails to work with error 0xe0050001 Endpoint Encryption for PC not activated.
Any other ideas?
The machine's os is on Windows 7.
Safeboot you have procedures on how to "successfully flush the MBR" for Win7 32-bit machine?Message was edited by: dpacificos on 12/1/11 10:05:59 PM CST
FIXMBR is a Windows command - you can run it from the windows rescue environment.
The options you are trying are not the right ones for this problem - both set EEPC specific MBR's, you need to set the sector 0 MBR to be a standard Windows version.Message was edited by: SafeBoot on 12/2/11 11:29:47 AM EST
I tried bootrec /FixMbr and command runs successfully but regardless after reboot I still get Endpoint Encryption is not installed on bootup. Should I try the /FixBoot option? Or any other suggestions?
sounds like you have a nasty rootkit, as it's impossible to get "SafeBoot is not installed" after re-writing the MBR with a standard one, as that's where the error message comes from.
