I have a Windows partition with safeboot (not my choice, of course)
I've managed to dual boot Linux on it (lots of juggling the MBR around to be able to install grub)
I have, of course, all the keys and passwords used to access my safebooted data via the usual ways.
I can boot into grub, select the safeboot MBR image, unlock it, and back on grub select Linux instead of Windows... if that does help in any way to access the data...
my disk layout is
- sda1, boot (grub), NTFS, safeboot
- sda2, extended partition table
- sda5 ext3 (with a dump of the safeboot image on sda1 before grub)
- sda6 swap
Do I have any hope of easily accessing the partition under Linux?
