Re: Booting TrueCrypt Windows Hard Drive

Hi to all!
I have a similar problem with this configuration:
sda1 : Ubuntu boot Partition
sda2 : Ubuntu Encrypted root
sda3 : Windows XP (other people have same problem with Vista) encrypted with Truecrypt.
There's a bug report related to this problem here ( ) opened by another user.

With grub-legacy everything works well: It chainloads the XP Truecrypt boot manager from a dump file. Here's the old menu.lst.
------------------- menu.lst ---------------------------
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,2)
chainloader (hd0,0)/truecrypt.mbr

Now, all what I get from Truecrypt boot loader is this message:
"TrueCrypt Boot Loader: Load damaged! Use Rescue Disk: Repair > Options > Restore Truecrypt Boot Loader"
Here is my actual grub.cfg entry.
-------------------- grub.cfg ---------------------------
menuentry "Windows XP" {
        insmod chain
        set root=(hd0,3)
    parttool (hd0,3) boot+
        chainloader (hd0,1)/truecrypt.mbr

How did you succeed to make it boot?
I mean, you find a way using drivemap to swap hd0 and hd1: is there a way to use drivemap for partitions? I suppose it's only for drives.
Is there another workaround? I'll be glad to try it on my system to find the solution.
Thanks in advance.
