The HP version from SafeBoot is a standalone / special version of SafeBoot (or, Endpoint Encryption for PC), so to say..
In short -- you should pick this up with HP techsupport, there's a site which they have handy for this though:
Regarding the "daily access code" -- this is a code which is designed for WinTech/SafeTech and the (original) EEPC version which is needed to grant access to some functions in Wintech/SafeTech.
This code is requested at techsupport from mcafee, but in your situation I am not quite sure if you will need it..
Hope this helps.
To get it to work, you'd probably need SATA or appropriate drivers for your disk controller in the BartPE image as well?
If you can't see the drive at all (it should appear as unformatted in disk manager if it's encrypted but inaccessible), then it's a driver issue for sure.
Oh yeah... not that it helps here, but don't load a BETA on a machine you care about. It is also not a good idea to "upgrade" a system if you can avoid it. Always install fresh, you'll always end up better off in the long run.
Root cause here is that Windows 7 will modify/overwrite the MBR, which explains the original error message (the encryption needs a very specific MBR). This also explains why other OS upgrades/modifications can cause problems.
User will need the Authorization code in order to run the decrypt operation in WinTech.
The drive is not appearing because the PE tool doesn't have the necessary disk drivers. You can try to rebuild PE with the necessary drivers, or try going into the BIOS and swithing the disk mode to "legacy" or something similar (this works sometimes).
Hi, I was on the phone to McAfee Support and they mentioned that there is an account I can set up with them so i can get the daily access codes with out ringing up?
Any one know about this?
You'll need to get an account on McAfee's Technical Support Service Portal. McAfee Support should be able to set you up.
