Has anyone else got one of these encrypted and working?
We have an Asus EEEPC 1005ha model which has issue with encryption rendering it unusable. I ve tried all manner of file group combinations and was able to get it to boot through authentication with the following enabled
exclude sector 59
update MBR for endpoint
update number of sides
machine options for always enable preboot usb and boot compatibility tried in all combinations
with the bios setting on the sata controller to compatible
with v5.2.1 and after upgrading to 5.2.5 it is still the same
Best situation I've managed is all the above enabled I can login with a user whose password is current, If I use a user who needs to change their password at login I get an unable to read object datastore attribute error (0xe0050045 unable to read data store object attribute) after a delay
If I cancel to te login to attempt recovery the pre-boot os hangs then displays 0xe0050045 unable to read data store object attribute
this system as a 160 sata hdd but the device packaging also states 10gb SSD storage although I can't see that in disk manager in XP.
just seen KB68037, this device has a seagate hdd but no bios options like the lenovo :-(
Does this version have the "bios boost" option? If so that needs to be disabled. You also need to install EEPC in "OS Install" mode AFAIR.
The bios option "Boot Booster" is disabled
What is "OS Install" mode for eepc installation, don't think I've come across this?
It's an Asus bios option I came across once - if it was off, it was impossible to get EEPC to activate. It may only be in the older models though.
This option says it just boosts bios post speed and I've tried it off and on.
What about OS Install mode, what does that mean?
you are asking me what Asus BIOS options are for? Not sure I'm qualified to answer?
In your first reply you said
"You also need to install EEPC in "OS Install" mode AFAIR."
I am asking what that means because I am unfamiliar with the term "os install" mode in relation to the installation of EEPC.
as I said, OS Install mode is an ASUS BIOS option...

:doh: I thought it was something to do with EEPC
I have eepc and the pre-boot activated to a point, it is just flakey and only works when the users password doesn't need to be changed
