which version of drive encryption you are using? Ah, i see, 7.1. With the DETech Tools it is easy going creating a boot device. What exactly is your problem?
I was able to follow the instructions on the in the McAfee DETech user guide to create the .dsk file using the Bootdisk.exe command (on page 60), and then I had to use MagicISO to make a bootable ISO file (see directions here: Using MagicISO to make bootable ISO file). Once the ISO file is created, you can burn the ISO file using Windows, or other CD burning programs (Roxio, Nero, PowerISO, etc.).
Unfortunately, the disc I created doesn't work well. It will boot a machine, but when I click either "enable usb" or the "authorize with token" buttons, it freezes.
there is several ways how to do it.
1) You can use the tool mkisofs.exe (from mkisofs and cdrecord 2.01 for Windows (Cygwin) (Updated binaries) | smithii.com )
Example of usage: mkisofs.exe -pad -b EETechTool.dsk -R -o EETechToolCD.iso /EETechTool.dsk
2) You can use application like MagicISO
- Load boot Image -> from boot image File -> select .dsk file
- Select Enable Expert Settings -> set floppy Emulation 1.44MB
- Add File .dsk
- Save As EEtechCD.iso
3) If you are using Intel AMT you can boot directly from .dsk file by using IDE-R, just use the .dsk file like floppy image.
Hope this help
we created a WinPE Boot environment (x64 Version).
The benefit is the decryption time. With the EETech Tool it takes sometimes several days to decrypt the disc. With the WinPE environment it takes only several hours.
I don´t know why McAfee does not deliver such an ISO. Other vendors/competitors are delivering such an ISO with a WinE environment.
