I was searching around the documentation for this with no answer.

I have v1of1 installed on my XP machine with system encryption. With regard to the boot loader being updated properly, can I just uninstall the old software and then install the new 1of2? Will that also update the boot loader? Or do I need to decrypt the entire system to upgrade?

Advanced Thanks

Hi,

Just install 1.0f-2 on top of 1.0f-1 and it will upgrade the bootloader automatically. You may also create a new rescue disk to match the newly installed version.
Anyway, you don't need to decrypt your system when updating VeraCrypt.
