Hi al_Jo, hi all,
I actually don't get how you get to 1. in the first place? I mean I got no working Windows? :/ So step 2 & 3 would be kinda obvious yet:
I actually (only on the 2nd try successfully) installed the boot thingy of DC on a USB stick from your DVD/build. Works. But then it doesn't load/boot of course(??) another time, but loads into the broken Windows, so nothing gained..?
Next, how would you proceed SPECIFICALLY, i.e. transition from mounted SSD to Windows repair? I actually successfully mounted D:\ with the DC script GUI (!), but even then it isn't accessible!!!? Why?
So I couldn't look into it either, nor did the Windows CD recognize it, as I did the highly illogical/weird step of removing the Win7PE DVD and reinserting the original DvD to start the setup.exe. But then windows gives an error message, stating it doesn't recognize ANY harddrive!! ...why is there no normal Windows 7 DVD file system structure on the Win7PE DVD ?? I thought all the programs were just an addition, but this looks like a big mess, missing the setup.exe? O.o No wonder the Win7PE DVD doesn't start into install/repair mode, but the PE Shell.
Why does it do that? Or did I maybe do sth. wrong when compiling the WB ISO?
It is all very confusing!
Anyhow, due to the lack of options, I'm now decrypting the whole drive, hoping to get easy access this way! Should've tried that this night -.- but now I'm already home...
i'm writing this from my iPhone! Because I took an old laptop & a swapped out SSD with me, assuming I could just put it in, but now this doesn't work either?! Why is Windows not ignoring the underlying hardware? O.o I hate Windows!!...and DiskCryptor...
By the way, yeah, I had & have no rescue CD here, god knows why! maybe I'll reencrypt & then pay closer attention to this! Meh...would love to get some feedback from actual DC users, hope you are warned now about the risks!
Absolutely horrifying days these were..
