I've run into a bit of an issue with one of my machines I'm testing EEPC 6.0 on. After the laptop finishes encrypting the hard drive, during the reboot it logins into EEPC screen fine and when it begins to boot into windows then the screen goes black and unresponsive. I am able to boot into safe mode though. I've been able to use the emergency disk to remove the encryption and it boots fine after that. Any ideas?
Older Laptop, IBM X31
Windows XP SP3 32bit
Did you happen to select "Always enable pre-boot USB support" in EE 1.0.0 Product Settings policy?
Try to run with this option de-selected. Recently EEPC 5.2.3 was released to address this issue, v6 was probably written before that.
OK. You may try other options in "Encryption Providers" tab of EE 1.0.0 Product policy:
"User compatible MBR"
"Fix OS boot record sides"
"Use windows system drive as boot disk"
What kind of video card is in the machine? I believe an issue has been identified on certain Lenovo models with ATI video cards and is being worked on.
I'm the "lucky" owner of a Lenovo T500 with ATI graphic card. I get this black screen after encryption. Are there any news about a solution for this problem ?
Well, if you get black screen, this might not be ATI issue. Apparently ATI problem manifests in bluescreen and affects XP OS only.
There is a workaround.
Same issue here with the black screen...although I think it's really a BSOD hidden by a black screen. The machine is inactive when this happens. The workaround is not acceptible as it means using standard vga drivers which make your display respond at a less than desirable rate.
My test machine is an IBM StinkPad T60 with an ATI x1300 video card. I cannot have the ATI drivers (or 3rd party Omega Radeon drivers) enabled or I get the black screen. Safe mode works fine but have to use it to disable/delete the ATI drivers.
After discovering a bug with AD LDAP queries, I am quite disappointed in McAfee for forcing the release of EEPC v6 and ePO 4.5P1 so quickly. These are show-stopper bugs for me.Message was edited by: JeffGerard on 11/01/10 1:34:29 CST PM
