I have Windows 7 on encrypted system disk (I have to enter password before getting to system boot). I suppose there is a driver loaded so Windows can read encrypted data and continue booting.

Will upgrade to Windows 8 succeed? I'm a bit worried about that driver and system transition.

Decrypt the drive first. Windows 8 uses a different boot loader than previous versions, so this is the recommended method. – user3463 Oct 27 '12 at 21:19

Decrypt the drive completely before attempting the install: others have reported problems with installing Windows 8 on a TrueCrypt volume.
