it's a hardware problem (resetting hardware) , so what is the hardware? wink
I'm thinking it has to do something with the sata driviers and/or sata issues.
I'm using a Compaq model CQ50 130US, which comes with vista.
I created an image using nlite, slipstreaming the sata driver in there and then installing XP.
These models have no where in the bios to change sata to reg. ata or comp. mode. ETC
As well as having an extreme hard time with drivers and such because there this model isnt supported by XP.
I did just update to the bios though and now im trying to encrypt it again to see if it works. lemme know
Do you think this make sense.
The McAfee Technical support told me that the problem stem from the fact that I checked all the file groups when creating the device group and installation set.
In the end I had to delete the original problematic device group and create a new one checking only the file group "Endpoint Encryption 5.1.7 Client Files", that is the only file group needed for the installation set process to end successfully.
Could there be also a file safeboot is pulling down , that alters the hardware configuration causing it not to boot.
Double check if you have the file set "EEPC51 Option: update the number of sides reported in the OS boot sector" checked. If it is try creating a new installation set without it.
To fix the issue without uninstalling try the command fdisk /fixboot using recovery console.
the EEPC51 Option: update the number of sides reported in the OS boot sector" checked. If it is try creating a new installation set without it"
Is done on the console side of things, correct?
Yes, It is done in the administrative console under the Endpoint Encryption Machine Groups.
I'm semi new, but could you walk me through that process.
I'm currently in the console
