Very new to this so I sincerely apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge.
My organisation recently started using EE7.0.2 in our estate (previously 6.2), which is primarily comprised of Dell laptops running Windows 7.
The field engineers who typically troubleshoot issues with encryption would be able to access files on the encrypted disk and/or perform an emergency boot using an older EETech disk created with BartPE.
Since upgrading the version of EEPC, these disks no longer work, and I gather there should be a new version - I've logged into the McAfee site with our grant number and found EETech.zip which has enabled me to create a bootable CD/USB with Standalone EETech, which opens the EETech interface. This is great, but on the previous versions we had an options menu in the lower-left of the screen which would also give access to other utilities, including the aforementioned A43 Disk Utility. How do I add these in to my bootable iso/USB as well? I've followed the guide located at https://web.stanford.edu/dept/its/support/swde/eetech/eepc_700_eetech_user_guide_en-us.pdf - using the BartPE instructions - and the resulting disk gives me a Windows XP loading screen before a BSOD.
I'm at a bit of a loss, really, and would be very grateful indeed for some guidance on this matter.
telling us what the BSOD message was would help :-)
You need to be using WinPE really, not BartPE, though for your version of EEPC it's probably ok. What you created (EETech Standalone) is not the same thing as you had before - it runs its own OS, not Windows. In the same place you would have found instructions on how to build a WinPE/BartPE version.
Who created your original CD? Maybe ask them to update it to the new version.
Or maybe read up on EZPE32 - Data Recovery Builder
agreed - useless.
I suggest making a bartPE CD using the PEBuilder, but don't add the EEPC components (you should just be able to untick that plugin). If that works, you know the problem is with the plugin not with BartPE in general.
