View Full Version : How to fix Boot with PGP encrypted disk?
June 15th, 2009, 02:14 AM
I restarted my machine and it is saying Boot Disk Failure, I have my HD Encrypted with PGP WDE, I have never had this issue before in the year I have been using PGP WDE, I'm wondering is their a solution to this issue?
I have almost everything already backed up but I just downloaded a bunch of torrents and Its been a wile seance I backed up my Firefox bookmarks ;(
I'm currently on a copy of Windows 7 I installed on an extra HD, and wow, I have to say I'm falling for it!

I guess I should have searched first, but anyways I found a solution I hope will work!
I'm going to try this Boot CD
To download the iso for creating a recovery image CD for PGP Desktop 9.10 click
Main Page for all versions here
Then I found this
Please read the related article PGP Whole Disk Diagnosis and Recovery to learn how to use the CD or floppy disk in case of corruption of the master boot record on a whole disk encrypted disk.
EEE I hope this helps me:-\

Weird? I plugged my WD WDE HD with XP on it and it just booted up, I guess its time to get another HD, seems like this one is about to fail on me, Oh well, at least I can Backup my newer data now;D
So it had nothing to do with PGP, its my HD that has issues:wacko:
