Safetech hangs at "loading program..........."

Jump to solution

THIS IS AN OFFLINE SYSTEM.....I have a Windows 7 machine with EEPC 5.2.12.    Before encrypting the system, I give the System Reserve partition a drive letter so EEPC will encrypt all partitions.  Since the primary partition is already given C:, I give the System Reserve partition the letter E: (the cd drive is D:).  I am able to successfully encrypt the machine (both C: and D:).  When I try to boot to Safetech, I'm stuck at the "loading program........" message and it never gets to the Safetech app.  Any ideas?

SafeTech Standalone? If so, then it's a hardware problem - either use WinTech, or you might have to change some bios settings to get it to work - FastBoot, IDE mode etc. Depends on the model of the machine.

The OS is irrelevant if you're booting SafeTech standalone off a floppy or CD.

It was a Dell Latitude series laptop.  I changed the Sata settings from RAID to AHCI and successfully booted to Safetech.  THANKS!
