We use McAffe safeboot to encrypt our Windows 7 PCs and laptops. I have one laptop that has been corrupted by the safeboot software. I tried to re image the machine but the connection fails and I am assuming it is due to the encrytion. I have never had an issue imaging before. At this point I just want to download something to a thumb drive that will let me reformat the C drive on my Lenovo laptop. Does anyone have software to suggest? I hope to just boot to a thumb drive and reformat, then start over.
