    hi yall, i was setting up a laptop for a friend and they needed their HD encrypted, so i encrypted the whole drive with truecrypt, except for the boot partition (since thats an option in truecrypt). then, after the drive was encrypted, i ran daz's bootloader, and based on other posts here, chose the "preserve boot" option from the advanced tab. daz's bootloader prompted me to reboot, so i rebooted, and after entering the password for truecrypt, the screen froze at 'loading...' and did not continue. i tried booting from the truecrypt rescue .iso, entered the pw, and again it froze at 'loading...' -- i also ran the option to 'repair bootloader', to no avail. since i couldn't think of anything else to do, i started decrypting the drive and left it to decrypt while i'm at work. i'll be back home in a few hours -- any thoughts on why windows wasn't able to boot or general advice is welcome!

    thanks for your help :D

    well, it turns out the drive decrypted just fine, but it left me with the truecrypt bootloader so i ran a recovery disc --> fixmbr and fixboot, which got rid of the truecrypt bootloader and windows is still saying that this copy is activated, which sounds great to me :)

    im putting the MGAdiag results just in case im missing something:

    Personally I'd encrypt the whole drive and use the default loader settings in your case. It should work.
