  • There does not seem to be a very good (or at least very accessible) discussion on how to independently (by this I mean not simply chaining boot loaders) multiboot Windows XP, Windows Vista RC1, Ubuntu, and other distros. As such, I would like to share my method for accomplishing such a setup.

    My setup uses multiple partitions on a single hd as follows:

    I came across this forum because i need some advice on how to rescue a corrupted truecrypt partition and perhaps also identifying the cause of the problem.

    I have a 1.5TB non-system disk with one partition which is Truecrypt encrypted (no hidden volume). After the installation of a new SSD and a few things i did during the setup of the new disk (described in detail below) i was not able to access the truecrypt volume anymore. At first truecrypt showed li
