2 major bugs and 1 minor

Post by Dave40 »

I've encrypted my NVMe SSD - on real hardware (not a VM). So far good performance. 8-)

But there are some bugs I noticed:
  • Secure boot must be turned OFF in the BIOS, otherwise when you install DiskCryptor and restart, Windows 10 will not boot.
  • If you select to use a keyfile to encrypt the Windows drive, you will be locked out.
  • Minor but noticeable bug: it's very hard to see which partition is selected for encrypting. Please use a blue bar to show the selected partition.

The secure boot thing is a know behavior
I'll look if its possible to get the efi loader signed properly for secure boot.

the key file is a problem indeed, you can put the key file on your uefi partition and set the path in the config file but its not user friendly at all

No, it's not
In earlier releases you could encrypt system with keyfile and generate iso loader(legacy boot) with embedded keyfile and run system from iso without asking for password.
Now there is no such option because of this fix in code prc_wizard_encrypt.c:

Code: Select all

EnableWindow( GetDlgItem( hwnd, IDC_USE_KEYFILES), boot_device ? FALSE : TRUE );
My oppinion it's mistake
