  1. I am unable to proceed further after “Number of System Drives” menu. After I select the number of drives as ‘1’, TrueCrypt comes with an error mentioning that “True Crypt does not support encrypting a whole drive that contains multiple operating systems” and comes up with two possible solutions of “encrypt single system partition as opposed to encrypt entire system drive” and “move other system to other drive”. Not sure if I have missed anything. Any help is much appreciated.

      1. If you are only encrypting the System Partition, what about the C drive?

        And Number of System Drives? 2 or more implies that there are other OSs installed on a second drive, which is not the case in this tutorial.

        1. If you have only one drive (doesn’t matter how many partitions and OS are installed on those partitions), then first try “1”. If it gives error, then select “2 or more”. Simple.

        2. If we encrypt whole drive using Truecrypt then wudn’t it become a double encryption when we run fedora! as fedora is encrypted too

  2. 1. How do I make a bootable flash drive of the desktop version of fedora 18 (4.5GB)?

    2. I have win7 installed on c drive. On D drive, I’ve my media files. And I can install Fedora on E Drive (100GB). After installing fedora 18 with a DVD, will I see a proper entry of windows7 on the list?

      1. thanks. Somehow, Unetbootin fails to boot the installer of fedora 18. It shows some error – /dev/root does not exist – and is stuck on it forever. I’ve tried other software in that link you provided, all are for live installation, not the desktop installation. (sorry I don’t know what exactly that is called).

        1. They are all designed to load the ISO image on the USB. Then after you boot from the USB, you can install the OS just like you would from a CD/DVD.

  3. Excellent article. The only drawback I can think of is losing access to windows partitions from Linux. Is there any workaround.

  4. that’s a great tutorial. does it limit the installation of new operating systems?

    I currently dual boot windows 7 and Fedora 18. I want both encrypted.

    I am also thinking of having a small 3rd OS installed which will have no personal data but will allow easy access to the internet so as to make recovery of a stolen laptop through something like Prey more likely.

    Am I correct in thinking that your method wouldn’t allow that?

    1. If you install the 3rd OS on the same HDD as another OS whose partition is encrypted, obviously, the 3rd OS is not affected by the other OS’ encryption scheme. So Prey will work on the 3rd OS.

      The trick in your case, with Windows and Fedora on the same HDD, is recovering enough space to install the 3rd OS. It can be done, though. Just resize your home or root logical volume.

  5. If I have Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 18 along with Windows 7, does creating auto configured Grub 2 menu for Windows Boot loader using EasyBCD will work ?
