I encrypted a desktop HP with SB 5.1.3. I logged into PBA a few times. For a test, I needed to decrypt the machine. I was able to use Safetech to decrypt it, but when I restarted to use the sbsetup -uninstall command to totally get rid of it, a message came up that SB was still activated. So I tried using Safetech again, thinking I didn't decrypt it. When I try to Authenticating From SBFS, I get this message: Authenticating the user failed with error e0050001. There isn't a PBA now. How do I totally get rid of SB?
Are you then saying that disk is encrypted? Then maybe re-run SafeTech, authenticated from database (SDB) and "remove safeboot" to decrypt disk and replace MBR.on 12/15/09 11:44:02 AM EST
