Booted from pgpboot CD-R, started a Decrypt, woke up to "Ø" on screen!
Happy New Year everyone.
I received a new MacBook Pro (Late 2011) with OS X 10.7.2 on it and PGP 10.2.0 MP2 installed.
I wanted to install Boot Camp and came to this site and poked around, and got the impression that I would need to decrypt the disk first so that Boot Camp could do its repartitioning thing.
So I downloaded the 10.2.0 MP2 "pgpboot" CD-R image, burned it and booted from it.
All went swimmingly for awhile - I got shown the prompt to hit "D" to decrypt, so I did. After several hours, I think it showed 65% done or so.
So I went to sleep. When I woke up, however, instead of seeing "100% done" or similar, the screen was white with the "Ø" (can't find a boot volume) icon through it.
I power-cycled and it booted from the normal boot Volume. I got asked for the PGP passphrase as usual, except now it doesn't accept my passphrase anymore.
So I tried to boot from the CD-R again. This time, however, it started to boot (CD drive whirring) but then ... the PGP passphrase asked for again. Like as if it hadn't even booted from the CD-R at all, but had fallen back to booting from the main boot volume again!
Now I'm completely dead in the water. I did use Carbon Copy Cloner to copy the disk contents (no changes from the fresh install) to an external drive first, but Disk Utility in the Recovery HD boot environment still doesn't see the main boot volume, which I would assume means that the PGP WDE driver is still installed in the EFI partition (disk0s1). (Am I right?)
Why didn't the Decrypt finish properly? Why can't I boot from the pgpboot CD-R anymore? Why did I get left with a "Ø" after leaving it running overnight? :-(
What the heck do I do now?
Thanks in advance for any help.
