I used Truecrypt to do a full disk encryption of my C:\ drive.
Now I want boot into the Dell Recovery Partition (Ctrl+F11) to do a full system restore.
However, I can't get into the Dell Recovery Partition (it does exist, and not encrypted - I checked), I am guessing its because Truecrypt modified and encrypted my boot loader. So I used the Truecrypt recovery CD and restored my boot loader to a pre-truecrypt state.
NOTE: Truecrypt asks me to first decrypt my C:\ drive, which I lied and said it's already decrypted, when it's actually not. The reason being that I am going to wipe the entire C:\ anyways, so I don't want to waste time decrypting it.
My question is, how come booting into my Recovery Partition still does not work? Is there something on the C:\ that is required to boot in to the Recovery Partition?
