Currently we are sharing a PC at home. I bought a new SSD disk and I want to encrypt it with TruCrypt (or BitLocker) & install a new Windows 7. Is it possible to see the OS selection menu when I hibernate then turn the PC on again? Or it will simply bypass the menu & resume the hibernated OS? I want to hibernate one OS and then switch to the other one.
As far as my knowledge goes, TrueCrypt provides a Hidden OS Capability, Read on it here: Hidden OS This installs TrueCrypt's Boot Loader to the Hard Drive which can boot your system depending on the password supplied. The other functions such as hibernate etc. work as normal, it just displays a boot selection menu at system boot up. Please make sure you read the provided link thoroughly. I have personally used this on 2 Windows XP Installations, Boot XP1 on password 1 and XP2 on password 2.
