I know that this isn't Truecrypt list but since the project is derived from that and it's officially dead I think this is the best place to ask these questions:
1, Is it possible to do whole disk encryption with Vera? Like I have a 1TB drive where I want to install 3 linuxes and windows 7 and windows8 on all different partitions and not bothering about doing any encryption from inside the OS-es rather encrypting the
entire drive and unlocking it at once at start?
If it's not possible which other reliable encryption methods exist for this?
2, I really hope I can get some clues about this question from devs and mbr wizards:
a, I had a 300GB disk with 1 Win7 partition truecrypt encrypted on it. (No system reserved partition was created)
b, TC loader was written into MBR
c, I installed debian wheezy for another partition with luks and lvm so my partitions would look like:
sda2-Linux EXT2 boot
Now what happend was, although I specified it for linux NOT to install grub to the MBR it did install it to the VBR (Volume Boot Record) of the windows partition. I found this after a lot of researching.
What happens when the computer started:
1, TC password menu comes in
2, If I push ESC it goes with the second bootable partition which is the linux boot where I manually installed grub into and loads linux (this works as it should)
3, If I enter the password --> Now this is where it supposed to load windows7 it drops me into the grub boot menu again
Now as I figured since truecrypt is in the MBR not Grub, then the only thing this grub menu can be coming from after I entered the password is:
a, It wrote itself into the core.img area
b, It wrote itself into the VBR of the windows partition ( I guess theis would not be encrypted by the OS encryption )
What can I do to put the windows loader back there? I tried fixmber etc it seems it dont want to get rid of the grub after truecrypt.
