View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Boot Win7-64Bit & Ubuntu 10.10 32-Bit + Encrypting with Truecrypt

February 3rd, 2011, 06:31 PM

I have a Win7 64-Bit Laptop and I want to install Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit. I don't think I will have issues with this. Once Ubuntu is installed and GRUB is updated to allow me to select with OS I will be encrypting the Laptop as it Policy.

The question,

1: Do I install Truecrypt on Both OSes and Encrypt each partition seperately or

2: Can I just install in on Both OSes and encrypt the entire drive from it and will this then allow access from the Other OSes.

Also will my Ubuntu install be able to access my Windows partition where most of my documents would be??

Dear you can use combination win7 64 bit with ubuntu 10.10 32 bit, but you cant access your files in win7 directory due to different file table structures
