I am trying to use the hidden OS feature. I am able to install the hidden OS (even restart and boot it and Windows works fine) but when I continue and try to install the decoy OS (on a partition which was wiped), I can boot the decoy OS but cannot boot the hidden OS anymore - when I enter the password for the hidden OS I get:
drive 0x80(LBA) C/H/S=[numbers], Sector Count/Size=[numbers]
Partition num: 0, active, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x07
Partition num 1, Filesystem type unknown type 0x06

Options if your HDD is larger than 1TB:
* Move your boot files to a smaller [...]
[THE WHOLE HELP TEXT IS PROBABLY NOT APPLICABLE BECAUSE MY PARTITION IS NOT LARGER THAN 1TB]

  1. How do I solve the problem?
  2. Is there a solution that doesn't require repeating the whole process of creating a hidden OS (it takes a few hours)?
  3. I will try using Truecrypt 7.1a tomorrow if nothing helps, do you think this issue will persist?
