Hi guys,


I'm running XP with Pre Boot Authetication (PBA) from ramdisk on my main machine using the TrueCrypt rescue CD .iso file to boot my ramdisk image with Grub4dos.


The system works great, but I don't like all the rescue CD repair options but I'm forced to use it because the the standard TC bootloader isn't capable of booting ramdisk images because it only tries to boot from physical drive 0.


The rescue CD checks all drives but it comes with several repair options that I really don't want and that could be potentially dangerous when applied on a system that boots from ramdisk.


I would like to patch the standard bootloader to make it behave like the CD version so I can get rid of all the boot/repair options and maybe put the bootloader on the ramdisk .img file so I can directly boot from it without using a separate CD image.


Does anyone has an idea how to do this ?
