    I've carefully gone through the steps of creating a hidden os but when I enter the pw in the tc bootloader, it starts the booting process but gets stuck on a screen that says:

    "Options if your HDD is large than 1TB:
    Move your boot files..." (I figure it's a pretty common diagnostic screen that you all have seen before)

    I'm able to boot into the decoy os but not the hidden os.

    The one area where I cut a corner during the installation process was during the decoy os process. Instead of installing a brand new decoy os, I restored an image of the partition that was created before the hidden os installation was stated. Could this be the source of my problem?

    I've restarted this entire process several times but i keep getting the same result...I hope someone can provide some insight into this issue. Thanks!
