Thumbs down Filevault messes up Bootcamp!

OK I had win 7 setup as secondary OS with Bootcamp.
Today I decided to turn on FileVault and encrypted the Mac, but it seems it has done more than that since when I boot now I don't have the choice to boot Windows anymore.

Once booted I can see the windows partition and the files there.

So I guess it encrypted them as well and the booter can't see them before the mac has dencrypted the file system.

But since when encrypted it asks for password twice, once very early in the boot process to decrypt and then the normal password at the log-in screen.
So if that's the case isn't there way to boot into windows after the fist authentication or other way around to use encryption and bootcamp BOTH?

Is there a reason for using of filevault?

File Vault as you may or may not know is a full-disk encryption. However it will not affect the Boot Camp partition as far as encryption.

Do you happen to have a Firmware password as well? If you're in OS X you should be able to restart and hold option to select your Boot Camp partition.

even from a cold boot you should be able to have that option.


If not, consider a VM instance of windows.

Of course there is a reason mate, I don't just go around doing random things so I can ask on forums about them later
I'm well familiar what it is and expected it will touch only the system partition, not mess with the whole disk.


I don't have a firmware password and as stated I when I restart with the option key pressed, it shows only the Mac partition.
Before the encryption it was showing the windows partition as well.
I haven't changed anything else, so it's for sure the encryption that messed it up, the only questions is how to make it work together with bootcamp?

Hey MacRaccoon, I had this same problem. Fortunately for me it was on my Macbook Pro that I have just sold and have bought a new Macbook. However, I now have bootcamp set up with Windows 7 and am running OS X 10.8.4. Everything works fine. But I want to enable filevault on my Mac side of my disk since I travel a bit and want / need the added security. I'm wondering before I enable filevault on my Macbook, if there is a way to do it where it doesn't mess up my boot camp side. Did you ever find a way to resolve this issue?

Post #7 worked for me, though I never messed with Tuxera NTFS driver... Hope this helps someone in the future...

(sorry if this has all been covered in that other thread... don't mean to double up posts!)
