No i didn't its all fixed now after a few hiccups , I connected a external usb that had a snow leopard install and ran 10.7 dev preview 2 from it and installed to totally fresh drive, had no problems after that.

Hi,
How do I turn disc encryption off? This is what mine says.....Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted)

Thanks, jerry

1. Launch Disk Utility
2. Select the encrypted drive in the listing.
3. Under the File menu, select Turn Off Encryption...
4. Enter the password of an account authorized to unlock the encryption when prompted.
