Using Winvblock, install XP sp3 into image file on physical (hd0,0), then encrypt said Windows "system partition" with TrueCrypt. So the boot process would be g4d (physical MBR) -> TC bootloader/PBA (image MBR) -> boot into Windows.
The 1GB image file was created using CreateRawImg, mounted with ImDisk and formatted NTFS with compression. BOOTICE was used to add NT5 MBR. XP sp3/programs/Office installation went fine.
hide (hd0,0) map --mem /tcdisk.img (hd0) map --hook root (hd0,0) chainloader +1
Does not work (hangs with blinking cursor), but this does.
hide (hd0,0) map /tcdisk.img (hd0) map --hook root (hd0,0) chainloader /ntldr
So I proceed installing TrueCrypt into the image file installation, where it successfully installs the TC bootloader/PBA (if you open the image file you can see the string "TrueCrypt Boot Loader." Upon reboot, I get g4d (physical MBR) and asks to reboot. At reboot I enter in g4d (physical MBR):
hide (hd0,0) map /tcdisk.img (hd0) map --hook rootnoverify (hd0) chainloader +1
The TC bootloader/PBA comes up and I enter the correct password. At this point I see the text "Booting..." and then it hangs with a blinking cursor. So I'm guessing TC bootloader/PBA then tries to boot the NT5 PBR where it hangs because it does originally?
Attached are the image TC MBR and image NT5 PBR.
