I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some technical information on exactly what Endpoint Encryption does to the MBR?
Does it create a new partition within the MBR, or does it create a new MBR?
We have had cases where laptops have stopped booting into Windows some point after Endpoint Encryption, and our support staff have ran FIXBOOT and FIXMBR which has then created a whole load of work for us having to use Wintech to try and gain access to the data.
If this was to happen again, would simply placing a new Image on a currently encrypted drive render the disk useable again, albeit in an unencrypted state and as a clean install?
We creating a new installation set without the "EEPC51 Option: update the number of sides reported in the OS boot sector" file set and under General>Miscellaneous> check "enable bootdisk compatibility."
I am not sure about the re-imaging the encrypted drive, but we have also found pushed the software without forcing the encryption initially and then if all goes well forcing later.
