When using FileVault2's Whole Disk Encryption, does it encrypt a bootcamp partition? If not, does it still allow access from Windows to the encrypted Mac disk? What about Parallels access of bootcamp for virtualization?
FileVault 2 creates a partition which is then managed by it, kinda how LVM works in Linux (the partition seems to be able to contain more than one "partition" but the file system sees it as only one).
So "Whole Disk Encryption" doesn't touch BootCamp drives at all; it just encrypts its Boot partition. Looking at this CoreStorage stuff, it seems more like a glimpse of things to come (Essentially it looks inspired by Windows Dynamic Disk, LVM and ZFS). It seems like
See this pastebin entry for information about my HardDrive, a single 750 GB Drive with a Mac and a Boot Camp partition. disk0 is a physical drive, containing a "Core Storage" partition. When booting and entering the password, the EFI Loader seems to mount it as disk1, a "virtual" hard drive.
FileVault 2 Core Storage encryption of the startup volume requires (but does not encrypt) the hidden Apple_Boot Recovery HD partition. This is not the only application of Core Storage.
Core Storage is also applied if, in the Time Machine pane of System Preferences, the user opts to encrypt a backup volume.
Core Storage is also applicable without encryption, and so on.
A highlight from the current diskutil(8) Mac OS X Manual Page (integral to 10.7 (Build 11A511); the page published by Apple is currently limited to 10.6.6):
If JHFS+ is just one example, then I guess that other file system personalities may be applied, but I have not experimented with NTFS or anything other than JHFS+.
Personally, I should not attempt to use Core Storage for Boot Camp purposes.
As in Windows I know of nothing comparable to
so I should not expect Windows to be bootable from storage that Windows can not recognise.
