Windows 8 corrupted installation TrueCrypt encrypted another disk with Windows XP

Hello, I need help. I just installed new Windows 8 on an empty partition of the secondary drive.

The first drive I got the previous installation of Windows (XP). Unfortunately, I forgot, this hard drive is encrypted TrueCrypt. Windows 8 now works OK, but the disc with Windows XP seems to be empty. The other partition of the disk with Windows 8 works fine.

I have the TrueCrypt rescue disk and he managed to restore the TrueCrypt Boot, but when I try to start, he writes, that no bootable partition was found. It allows us to decipher the drive and when I start it, it seems to work, but it is too slow and I need to know if this can help. Try to restore a Volume of TrueCrypt header in Windows 8 fails ("way of wrong installation, wrong password or not a TrueCrypt Volume"). Pourrait installing Windows 8 format the drive?

(Sorry for my bad English)

Later: I tried data recovery, and it shows some files and folders

Hi Daniel,.

The drive that contains Windows XP displays empty because the file format of Windows XP is FAT (File allocation table) that is not supported by Windows 8. Windows 8 uses NTFS (New Technology File System). I would say to contact TrueCrypt support to check why the description of disk takes a long time. In Windows 8 If you want to encrypt or decrypt the data, you can use bit-locker installation. I suggest you to see the following links for more information on encryption of bit-locker.

  • Is it possible to move the \windows\installer folder? The reason why I ask is because it takes a lot of space and I want to move it to another disk with more space.

    The \windows\installer folder takes a lot of space and I want to move it to another drive if possible. Ashwin

    No, I don't think. Just about anything in the Windows directory cannot be moved. You will need to find another way to clear disk space. Try to compress your drive hard (if you don't know how, ask).

  • Setup removes the junction point NTFS redirect the folder system "\Windows\Installer" on another disk.

    On a computer running Windows XP Professional SP3, I redirected the "\Windows\Installer" system folder, with a junction to a record point in a tree of directories to a different drive.  The operation was conducted and verified using "junction v1.06 - creator of junction point analysis viewer and Windows' published in 2010 by Mark Russinovich. I moved all the files and subdirectories contained in the original "\Windows\Installer' in the target directory (the these files had been previously copied to a temporary directory and after the move, I checked that they were visible in the folder '\Windows\Installer' open the symbolic link with the Explorer).
    Then I launched a system patch, and I discovered that the installation of the update of the software deleted program point junction that I created, deleted all the cache contained in the directory with the name of substitute target different files and recreated the "\Windows\Installer" folder in the original disc.
    I tested this behaviour a couple of times, installing various software and updates, so I assume that it does not depend on the software that is installed but the installation program itself, which cannot handle a point of junction of the folder "install".
    No warning is given before deleting the junction point and all of its contents.  With a similar procedure, I made two points of junction for '\Windows\Downloaded facilities' and '\Windows\Microsoft.NET' and they have exploited properly.
    Out of understanding points do not work on startup, so it is impossible to redirect for example. :

    • \Windows
    • \Windows\System32
    • \Windows\Config

    "\Windows\Installer" isn't one of those cases, and it is not used at startup.

    Is it possible to use a junction point to redirect the \Windows\Installer on another disk/partition folder, or Setup will always delete all the files that have been targeted in the naming of replacement?

    Put your computer in a clean boot configuration before proceeding with the download of updates. Clean boot starts Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs and help to eliminate software conflicts.

    Please see this article for detailed information on how to do it.

  • "Database corrupt installation" - discovered after failures repeat the installation of automatic updates of Windows

    We're running out of WinXP SP3.  Apparently, we are unable to install/uninstall anything correctly.  I think it may have something to do with "a basic installation damaged."  I got this error when trying to manually install KB972581 (a security update for 2007 Microsoft Office System).  This could have been caused by running the Windows Installer cleanup utility, I didn't have problems with Office 2007.  We were informed at all by continuing to upgrade with another program issues.

    We daily use Outlook 2007.  Multiple users, so we can't delete it.

    Same thing with KB970895 (update of security for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2) - another failure with the description of the error "Unable to install Windows Installer MSP file".

    Basically, the automatic updates of Windows always fail.  Comprehensive research of these forums, I found and ran the Microsoft FixIt! # 50202, without result.

    How can I fix anything that makes things installation fails?

    I had a similar problem - resolved two things actually. First make sure yu have the latest windows installer engine. Then download the package fails and run interactive mode. This will give you the 'real' error which causes the failure so that you can correct it.

    In my case it was a dependency on another file system that was resolved by running sfc/scannow - it's maybe not the question you... once again, run the full installation package and also to enable logging to track down issues...

  • I want to move the profile data and the addons on another disk

    I want to move the profile data and the addons on another disk.

    Can I specify where Firefox puts the profile and the addons?

    If another location, then Windows uses by default.
    c:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

    WinXP, FF 3.6.8

    You can do this by using the Profile Manager. When you create a new profile, you can specify a location for the profile folder.

    You may create a new profile, and then transfer the data to it. For more information, see create a new profile for Firefox on Windows and transferring data to a new profile.

  • Windows allocate two disks with the same letter

    I had a systems problem where the computer would not be arrested because of the computer by providing two different players with the same ID letter ("F") during the race. The program kept asking I have reformat the drive "F". I had a former player ID'd as ('' F ''), I accepted. When the computer has been restarted I had reformatted the bad drive which was not initially ID had as player ("F").

    I get a message stating, Windows has assigned a drive letter for the U3 drive that already has another on your computer, or there is no more available on this machine drive letter. Try disconnecting that drives any network that you have connected to your computer, and then restart U3 by double clicking on launch 3. exe or the U3 icon of the CD-ROM system. Once the U3 Launchpad is running, you can reconnect the network drives.

    I deleted all the additional disks (4) and restarted the computer and still get the same message with all the drives removed. I followed the instructions as guest above and restarted the computer and still get the same message.

    The line above also comes with a troubleshooting option button, but when I select this it takes me to the Web and trying to sell me U3 drives.

    How to resolve this conflict.

    Go to start / Control Panel / administrative tools / computer management / disk (with the drive plugged already of course) and make sure that the screen is maximized and then press the PRTSCR button.  Then click on start / all programs / Accessories / Paint and open and right click on the area map and click on paste to create an image of screenshot of disk management.  Enregistrer save as Disk Manager, then select it. JPG file type and put it on your desk at the moment.  Then, go to and open a free SkyDrive account if you do not already have one, then add the. JPG file to a folder on SkyDrive.  Click on the file and on the bottom right, it will provide information on the file whose link to access. Please copy this link and post it here in your next reply so I can see for myself rather than ask a thousand questions on what he says.

    I don't see how you could have used all the letters of reader available unless you have drives mapped to all kinds of network locations or even just disks, partitions or folders on your own computer (but a lot of them).  How many local mapped make you thing you have (as opposed to say the computer)?  I also don't understand how the system can assign the same letter to two different drives, partitions, networkk places, records or other in all circumstances - something is wrong and I don't know what it is given the information available at this stage.  Maybe see Disk Manager will help you.  Which version of Vista you are using (for example, 32-bit Vista Business SP2)?

    Thanks and good luck!
