Technical Solution


Creation of a WinPE recovery disk does not work in Windows 7.  PGPPE.EXE does not properly create the .wim image and the PGPWDE command is not recognized upon booting into the WinPE environment 


 No error is seen, PGPPE.EXE incorrectly reports back that drivers have successfully been inserted.


 Windows 7 32 and 64-bit systems


This issue no longer present starting in Symantec Encryption 10.3.0. 

For versions prior to that, the workaround is to create the WinPE .iso image on a system running Windows XP.
