your IT team will have the plugin for v4.2 in the tools directory of our distribution CD. They will be able to get the information off the machine for you.
Thanks for the answer but knowing my suspicious company I will not try that.
I had another idea: Safeboot 4.2 gives you the option of Booting from Floopy Disk: I installed a Boot Manager on the Floopy which allowed me in turn to boot BartPe from CD. It worked well at the beginningm starting to boot BartPe, however then I got a boot error due to some problems with the acpiec.sys file. There is no problem in booting BartPe without authenticating to Safeboot first.
There is still the way of loading a DOS from Floppy and with that way I can access my damaged harddrive, however it is painful due to the 8+3 Limitation in DOS.
thanks a lot anyway, Roland
yup. I expect you got an "inaccessible boot device" error - because your BartPE CD doesn't have the drivers for the encrypted drive installed.
i am sort of having the same problem, i created a BartPE CD with SafeBoot Support, and a boot manager floppy, after i authanticate in safeboot, the boot manager starts, and i choose to boot from CDROM but it does not boot, the CDROM Spins about three times and then there is no responsse at all from the pc,
i have tested the following and is fine:
1 - the cd boots on its own
2 - if i boot from the floppy with boot manager then CDROM it works
Can you Help?
Not sure why you are using a floppy at all - just use WinTech after booting the BartPE CD?
Thanks for your reply, i would gladly use the Wintech if i had it, in our safeBoot 4.2 installation CD i can only find a folder called SafeTech, and i have no idea how to use, i have searched the web on SafeTech to no avail... is there anywhere i can download WinTech, or find documentation on how to use SafeTech?
It's in the recovery directory I believe, but you'll need a later build, 4770 for example.
Your helpdesk should have the distribution media, or access to it?
