Re: Cannot access windows 7 Partition
In preinstalled Win7 systems, the partition you're mentioning is typically the one containing the boot loader files. If this is indeed the case on your machine, LEAVE IT ALONE!! You mess with this, and you won't be able to boot Win7 anymore.

I suspect that the problem may be caused my windows' new drive encryption although im not sure. Im just wondering if anyone else confirm my suspicions?
Given that the OS partition is encrypted, you won't be able to see its contents. IF you could see them, then simply booting from an Ubuntu LiveCD would bypass the encryption -- and that wouldn't be very secure, now would it?
