Fix MBR was performed. System won't boot. I would assum when you run Restore MBR from the repair CD, It's going to look at the MBR and fix it (Encrypted or Not) in it's current state. Why would the CD Restore MBR - NOT resolve an encrypted MBR? Bottom Line: I need to either, 1. the OS to boot or 2. get the data off. Whats the next step.
Partition 1 Bootable true
Start Sector 81920
Sector Count 204800
The Workspace is Empty
What's the original condition you are trying to resolve? Restore MBR restores the machines original MBR - it won't help you boot an encrypted machine. It's only used if you decrypted the machine first.
If you want to get the data off, boot off a WinPE EETech CD and just copy it out. If you want to repair the machine, you need to tell us what the problem was to start with.
IF you've restored the MBR though, most likely your only solution now is to decrypt since you'll have broken the link between the MBR and the disk info.
assuming you're using EEPC7, you can find the eetech menu in the kc - http://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/24000/PD24204/en_US/e...
I have EEPC 184.108.40.206.. No Wireless connectivity. Lots of yellow exclamations for Networking in Device Manager. A piece broadcom security software was removed from add/ Remove programs. Reboot was required. System Blue screened on restart. One of the technicians wanted the computer to boot, thinking EEPC was smart enough to restore the EEPC boot issue. So he Restored MBR. Now we have "Missing Operating System. That's where wer'e at. "Restore MBR" shouldn't even be on this type of repair CD.
Thank for the help.
Have updated the other thread you have going on this topic.
Key point to remember, is if the machine blue screens, then the eepc boot is working perfectly (BSOd is a windows problem, to get that far the encryption system must be fine)
There was nothing broken with eepc.
