you can boot of WinPE/BartPE and do all these things, or you can add the encryption drivers to your own Windows-based rescue media etc.
it's all explained in the docs in the "recovery" directory, and you can get the info for WinPE2+ from your services team.
thats great , thanks, will dive into those docs now....
If you are referring to the wintech/safetech admin guide I have been reading that and to do anything you need an authorization code? Im still waiting to hear back from mcafee exactly how I go about getting this? - EDIT got code through my login on site
are there any other docs I should know about?
however if i put these in a .reg file and run it i get "error accessing registry"
and thats where i'm up to! help/suggestions welcome...:confused:
did you import the PE hive file under the HKLM/SafeBoot key?
it's not the "real" safeboot key we are working with (thats under HKLM/currentcontrolset/safeboot), it's the fake key created as a placeholder for the merged in hive.
the instructions will work for any pe type environment, but Bart is the simplest. There's a script to do it for PE3 though which you can probably get from your prof services people.
well ive managed to do it the easy way instead, got pebuilder and made a disk with the safeboot plugin in.
its now asking for the authorisation code mentioned by mkr09.
he says he got it through his login?
my login hasnt been authenticated as a genuine customer (although i am of course) so how will i get this?
edit: dont answer that , i've done the reading, found out how, and obviously i need proof of purchase , a "grant" number.
but as i'm working for the [edit, lets just say one of the biggest employers in the world] (at a remote oupost) , and the software is business-wide, the chances of ever finding this out are miniscule.
still , i'll try....
