Hi I would like to explain something about EEtech
• A third party defragmentation tool has been used without suitable exclusions being set, which has moved the PBFS host file, despite the OS locking the file. The PBFS is no longer available to allow authentication to occur in a normal fashion.
• A rootkit has infected the MBR of the system.
• EETech (Standalone) for software encryption on BIOS based systems
• EEOpalTech (Standalone) for Opal encryption on BIOS based systems
• EETech (UEFI) for software and Opal encryption on UEFI based systems
On UEFI systems, SecureBoot should be disabled in order to use EETech.
These rudimentary tools are provided for performing only emergency boot from floppy, CD, or USB stick.
• EEBoot for software encryption on BIOS based systems
• EEOpalBoot for Opal encryption on BIOS based systems
Functionality is similar between EETech and EEOpalTech.
The WinPE version is many times faster than the stand alone version, and also allows you to access the encrypted hard disk and either fix windows problems, or copy user data off before reimaging. You can also run other (any) windows tools as well, and access the network.
The stand alone version just allows you to fix eepc issues and decrypt, nothing more.
Thanks for the answer. Makes a lot of sense. So it looks like I need all the different types of EETech to cover all the bases in my environment, except for Opal (don't have any of those, yet).
Naturally, after I posted the question, I happened to download the documents for v7.0, being curious as to the new features, and discovered in the EETech guide a handy-dandy table listing the features and functions of the different types of EETech. Too bad it wasn't in the v6.2 guide.
