It sounds like your EETech CD is bad - for it to tell you the device driver is not present means just that usually - when it was built, something went wrong.
Everything is showing up unknown because without the device driver, EETech can't read the hard disk.
Thanks for your response.
Just tried creating the disk again making sure it was the 6.1.2 version for windows 7 .... same result :-(
Have created these disks many times before with no problem.
Only need the data of this laptop ! Its a time stealer.
Maybe you missed out the HDD drivers for this laptop? Does the drive appear at all? It should appear to be unformatted. If there's no record of the drive, then for sure you are missing the controller drivers.
Either fix that, or switch the BIOS into ATA/Compatibility mode temporarily.
Thanks again for replying.
It must of been the CD we had created. I simply created a floppy EETech Standalone bootable disk from the instructions in
It worked and decrypted a treat.
