OSX 10.8.2 won't boot after installing PGP 10.2.1 MP4

This issue has been solved. See solution.


We're using a brand new Apple Mac Book Pro running 10.8.2 Mountain Lion and tryng to encrypt the entire drive. As per the October press-releases, we're using PGP 10.2.1 MP4 but after restarting, the grey-screen apple logo turns into a circle with a slash thru it and becomes unresponsive. 

Should this work as a simple install?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, it should work. I would check your boot EFI version with Apple to make sure that it is the most current version. Apple had an incompatability with Full Disk Encryption products, including PGP WDE (now Symantec Encryption Desktop).

Please see the following tech article for more information:
