I have full system encryption on my Win 7 Pro/64 hdd. I boot the machine and enter the TrueCrypt password, and Windows starts to load but fails with the error message "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". I tried the below solution (taken from this answer) and all went well until step 6. I do not receive any error messages when performing this step but the drive doesn't mount. Is there another way to access the drive after Windows fails to load? I no longer have the TrueCrypt rescue disk.
- Step 1: Plug in the hard drive to a computer with TrueCrypt installed.
- Step 2: Open TrueCrypt and click "Select Device" in the box where it says "Volume".
- Step 3: Select the partition that
in(is?) encrypted and click "OK".
- Step 4: Pick a drive letter from the list then click "Mount".
- Step 5: After the password box pops up, click "Mount options...". Check "Mount volume as removable media" and "Mount partition using system encryption without pre-boot authentication" and click "OK".
- Step 6: Enter the password and click "OK".
- Step 7: Right-click on the mounted device in the drive list and click "Open".
