Hey Everyone, Safeboot rookie here to please bare with me. I'm having an installation issue with Safeboot client 5.1 which I can't figure out for the life of me.
When I install Safeboot 5.1, the GINADLL in the registry gets changed to SBGINA.DLL and when the machine reboots (after I log in to safeboot) when the Windows Logon screen comes up it goes directly into the logon screen instead of the ctrl-alt-del screen. Though this may not seem like that big a deal, it forces the user to have to press ESC to get back to the ctrl-alt-del screen so that they could then insert the smartcard and be prompted for their PIN. If I was to change the GINADLL entry back to MSGINA.DLL, it works as expected on the first reboot, but the automatically changes itself back to SBGINA.DLL and back in square one...
Anyone have any ideas how I can either 1) Change it so that Safeboot doesn't bypass the ctrl-alt-del screen or 2) Change it so that the MSGINA.DLL change is permanent to avoid this issue.
Now, to make things even more interesting, the above issue occurs when I do a brand new installation of Safeboot 5.1. If I was to, instead, install 4.2 and then 5.1 after, it leaves the gina as MSGINA.DLL and everything is honkie dorie.
Still looking for assistance on this. Is anyone else experiencing this?
After the suggestion above and some more testing, the problem comes down to this:
With Safeboot 5.1, when I install the client and enable the option to keep my windows password and safeboot password synchronized, safeboot replaces the gina with SBGINA.DLL. This would work fine, except for 1 issue which I'm surprised no-1 else has ran into...
When the machine boots up, rather than going into the ctrl-alt-del screen, it goes straight into the legal notice as if the machine triggered a ctrl-alt-del command by itself. Only way to stop this for us so far has been do disable to windows login synch option, but then we lose that ability.
We're using SmartCards for authentication into Windows and for internal security reasons, we are unable to use them through Safeboot. So, by triggering ctrl-alt-del, the users have to exit out onto the normal previous screen to insert the smartcard to trigger the pin request.
So I suppose the question would be, is there any way to maintain windows password synchronization with Safeboot without having Safeboot trying to log on?
