PGP WDE - Killed Secure Bootloader after installing Win7 on 2nd HDD
due to lack of knowledge it seems that I killed my WDE HDD.
I placed a second HDD in the UltraBay-Slot of my laptop an installed Win7 on this HDD.
After the installation I ejected the second HDD and tried to boot from the WDE HDD. As I said, lack of knowledge, now I know that Win7 overworte something on the WDE HDD.
After reading a lot of articles I downloaded the PGP Recovery Disk. When I boot from this disk it takes quite a while until a PGP record is found. But by entering my passphrase it only takes me to a screen "No operating system found.".
So I've booted from the second (non-WDE) HDD again. In the Windows Disk Manager the WDE HDD is shown as an NTFS HDD and as 100% free.
When I use a data recovery tool I get the result, that it finds on nearly 100% of the HDD data in raw format.
After that I installed PGP Desktop into the Windows 7 on the second HDD to decrypt the first HDD, but PGP Desktop doesn't find any PGP Volume. It also sees the WDE HDD as empty.
My question now is:
What are the next steps I can do?
Is it useful when I try to restore the MBR on the WDE HDD?
