10.6: Update renders Mac with PGP disk encryption unbootable
Authored by: david29 on Nov 15, '10 08:11:59AM

Anyone else getting the "Unable to verify efi state" message when running the PGPwdeEFIUpdate.sh script?

I am running PPF WBE v10.0.3.1. My primary (internal) boot disk is NOT encrypted, however I back up to an external drive which is encrypted.

I updated my internal boot disk to 10.6.5. I then backed up that internal drive to the encrypted external.

So, does this problem pertain to me? The bulletin on the PGO web site is very poorly written and is ambiguous - I cant figure out if it pertains to me or not. Plus I get the "Unable to verify efi state" message, and I cannot boot from the external drive.

David, I'm trying to wrap my head around what you're saying and doing.

If you are not using PGP Whole Disk Encryption to encrypt your boot disk, then you don't have to worry about the update for the boot disk. You're good to go.

How are you backing up to an encrypted drive? What tools are you using? PPF WBE and PGO don't sound familiar to me.
