I am attempting to decrypt the hard drive on a laptop that has been encrypted with Safe boot. I do have the legal key to start the decryption but it does ask me for the range of sectors to be decrypted. How can I get windows to display the range of sectors on the C drive so that I could start decrypting it.

1) Use fdisk or any partition manager to see sectors start end per partition

the Free Gparted may supply a little more info as well as partinfo ( maybe still free from Symantec - Partition Magic )

   
I hope this helps !

I sincerely apologize for taking so long to get back to you. However, none of the suggested applications worked. As a result I decided to just reformat the drive and reinstall windows Xp and the necessary applications.
