View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing ubuntu on a laptop with existing full disk encryption

April 26th, 2011, 08:23 PM
Hello All,

I have a laptop with Win XP and truecrypt. The laptop has full disk encryption. Is there anything I should be aware of with installing ubuntu 10.10 (dual boot)? For instance, should I decrypt the hdd before installing ubuntu along side Windows?

As a precaution, using the live CD, I already made a backup of the /dev/sda MBR.

I would appreciate any advice/help/suggestions.
