How, if at all possible, could you get a PC (XP) to boot to alternative OS via a CD/DVD boot disc if its using full disk encryption (in this case pointsec). The alternative boot disc OS needs to be able to read the data on the local encrypted drive. I am struggling to see how this could be done. If you boot the machine normaly it prompts with a pointsec login screen where you enter credentials (fine), then it automatically starts up windows and in this case logs you into the domain. I could do with a way whereby after the pointsec login screen it doesnt boot into windows it boots into the OS on the boot CD? Any ideas if its possible and how youd configure such?
