HP8510p:Need a Tech Code for decrypting a drive encrypted with SB 5.0
I have a HP 8510p which is coming with the Safeboot 5.0 (as part of their Trusted Platform Module). The drive is fully encrypted with Safeboot and I have the HPDRIVEEncryptionBackup.dat file.
The problem is that now Vista is not starting anymore after a buggy driver which I installed. I am able to login into Safeboot but not able to access my files because Vista restarts itself no matter what I do.
I created a BartPE CD with SBWintech inside and I am able to boot from it.
I loaded the DAT file, but I need a TechCode. I am not a McAfee customer, and the HP guys are absolutely clueless. I tried to create an account, but I need a so called "Grant ID" which I have no idea what it means.

Just to have the above issue clear: The Support Engineer from HP didn't even know that such a solution is possible. I really don't think that it makes sense to waste time with them. Do I have to open a new call ? I understand if this is the only way to get that code (probably billing issues).
I am installing now the drivers for SATA. I'll post here the results.
