Hi there, My system background info: Toshiba L645-S4104 Toshiba Recovery Discs (3 discs) I basically followed the following guide because it looked pretty simple until I got to the end about installing the decoy os: p1 http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Hardware-Guides/Creating-a-Hidden-OS-with-TrueCrypt/ p2 http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Hardware-Guides/TrueCrypt-Hiding-Your-Operating-System/ p3 http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Hardware-Guides/TrueCrypt-Hidden-OS-Completing-the-Decoy/ First time doing this. I am having some troubles booting into my recovery media discs after installing the hidden os and wiping the original system partition as truecrypt instructed. Afterwards, I was able to boot into the hidden os, but the computer won't boot into my recovery discs even though cd/dvd is set to first boot priority. So basically I'm stuck and I can't install the decoy os. To be specific, the following is from disk management: Before installation of hidden os: Healthy (Active, Recovery Partition) Healthy (Primary Partition) C: Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) NOTE: Notice the (Active, Recovery Partition). I had to set C: Active in windows disk management because during the process of setting up the hidden os, TC wouldn't let me continue unless my current os was set to active. That's why I set C: Active and then I was able to continue. After installing hidden os: Healthy (Recovery Partition) <---no longer active Healthy (Primary Partition) D: (UDF) Healthy (Primary Partition) <---this is probably my current recovery disc in the drive E: RAW Healthy (Logical Drive) <---this is probably the hidden os ? C: NTFS Healthy (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) How come I can't boot into my recovery discs? Does it have anything to do with me setting C: Active? Another thing is, I can't "reactivate" the Recovery Partition in windows disk management. I hope I didn't mess up because I really hate to reinstall the system.
