Winmagic SecureDoc with RAID 1 issues
Posted on 2014-03-20
Recently I have been working on a hard drive encryption project at work, using Winmagic's SecureDoc hard drive encryption. As I installed it on normal clients, it has worked great. However, I had to install it on a Dell Precision M6400 laptop with a RAID 1 mirror. Since the install it will not boot into Windows 7. It gets stuck on the starting windows splash screen and all disk activity stops.
I removed the primary drive and it boots from the secondary drive. I ran DFT on the primary drive and it passed. I swapped the two drives with no luck. I wiped the primary drive to see if the raid would rebuild with the drive empty. Still same result. I also tried another hard drive, same result. Any ideas would be appreciated.
