My Windows 7 OS is corrupted, it goes through the McAfee Endpoint Encryption authentication, then gets stuck on "Loading operating system...". I can boot from a Win7 recovery CD to command line, but it says "The volume does not contain a recognized file system." when trying to access C to recover (understandable since it's encrypted). What I'm looking for is the ability to authenticate the encryption so the windows recovery can work (or I can reinstall, hopefully saving data). I'd expect some form of driver I install on my Win CD to get to the drive through my McAfee password.
Based on other posts on this forum, I realize I should be working with my corporate IT (and I am), but they're not able to figure it out easily other than to send the machine back and they'll do a full unencrypt (a 4-5 day effort with lost productivity). They're willing to work with me if there is a way to do an OS repair, but they're not sure how to do that.
I read about a potential recovery solution (also saw something about 'code of the day'?), but not sure where to begin to find that information.
Any help would be appreciated.
You will need to build a recovery cd by following the instructions available here https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=PD22214, but I would advise that this is performed by your IT since this is a complex tool and it's misuse can lead to data loss.
