DETech - BAD XML Error 0xEE000005

Hi,

I am trying to recover my Laptop and have generated an XML recoverable file using my Disk Key Check value using McAfee ePO.

When I Authenticate using DETech with the XML file I get an Error.

Error: 0xEE000005

BAD  XML.

Below is the XML

<MfeEpeExportMachineKeys>

<errorCode>0</errorCode>

<additional>

<key>eJsbsjHf6msbHLl9ZIctZCzMCS3kKtR9qvDge4Cg5P4=</key>

<algorithm>AES-256-CBC</algorithm>

<algInfo>Algorithm identifiers do not indicate device encryption algorithm</algInfo>

<creationDate><milliseconds>13111224141280</milliseconds></creationDate>

</additional>

</MfeEpeExportMachineKeys>

Could someone help me out? Why is this XML not working?

Thanks,

-Vivek

Thanks a lot . The only option if the Xml file doesn't works for me is to format my whole system. Already having nightmares.

Hello @keki,

which Version of drive encryption are you using? How about the System Startup. Do you see the PreBoot authentication Login? Is Preboot active?

Which steps you have performed to create the recovery media?

Cheers

Re: DETech - BAD XML Error 0xEE000005

Hello ​,

a) DETech version - 7.1

b) Do you see the PreBoot authentication Login - No. I straight away get an error.

Error : 0xEE0D0001

Failed to read registry file

c) Preboot Active: Not sure what this means.

d) To create recovery media:

- I have one drive only (Disk 0). I used my disk Key Check value to generate XML file from McAfee ePO using the option Export recovery information based on Disk Keycheck.

- I found the KeyCheck value using DETech Disk Information menu.

- Generated XML file when used to authenticate via DETech throws BAD XML error.

Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks in advance.

Re: DETech - BAD XML Error 0xEE000005

A couple of specific questions for you.

1. Did you know, and was certain, of the name of the host?

2. Did you see the host name listed in ePO?

3. If the cannot see the host name in ePO, was that the reason for you asking about the disk keycheck?

4. Was the system deleted at any time?

Hi I'm having a similar case here. 

- Was this issue resolved for you? 

To answer 's questions-

1. Did you know, and was certain, of the name of the host?- yes 

2. Did you see the host name listed in ePO?- Yes

4. Was the system deleted at any time?- Yes it was. I'm trying  to retrieve the old key not the current one. 

I did not use the keycheck option to export xml file- just the basic "export recovery information" option and retrieve old keys. 

Any help would be appreciated.
