Sorry but I could't found in the FAQ / Wiki and any other sourceforge forum/reddit/yt/google etc the solution for this.
So, I have my laptop with 2 SSDs.
On the first SSD ( main SSD ) I've installed WIndows 11. I have only one partition (C🙂 where it's installed the windows and I've encrypted the whole system ( so the whole SSD ) with Veracrypt.
Everything worked fine.
Now, on my second SDD I've installed Windows 10.
Problem is, whenever I turn-on my laptop, it asks me for the VeraCrypt password before even choosing which OS to use and boot.
So, my first question is:
1) Is there any boot manager or any work-around about this? Because I want when I boot, to firstly choose the OS and then to put the password ( if it's encrypted or not ).
Now, I have another problem. I've tried to encrypt my Windows 10 with Veracrypt but for some reason, I tried to encrypt, it worked after restart but it said that my C: is already encrypted ( but it shows the FIRST SSD WITH WINDOWS 11 ) and I can't encrypt it with another password. I don't know why it shows on my Windows 10 that I already have it encrypted while showing me the Windows 11..
because Windows 11 is on my first SSD ( 1 TB ) and it shows 1TB but my second SSD is 2TB and it simply doesn't show anymore. Thing is, it have letter C on WIndows 10 and can't even change with diskpart the letter so maybe Veracrypt can see another letter...
So my second question is:
2) How can I encrypt my second OS with Veracrypt so when I boot up my Windows 10, it will ask for the password I choosed for this OS?
And my final question is:
3) If I encrypt the OS when I freshly installed it and I install programms and log-in and store pics, etc, it will encrypt everything over and over or at least be protected?
Or do I need to encrypt my OS after I installed my programms and backup my family photos, etc??
Is there a difference to full-encrypt after a fresh Windows install vs after I back-up everything up? Because I wanna know if I add more pics or maybe install a new game, it will be encrypted?
In my WIndows 11, I partitioned the second SSD so it shows as " Z ". Should I encrypt the partition from Windows 11? But I don't know, when I'll boot-up windows, will it asks me for the password or it will just break functionality?
I just want to encrypt both Windows ( 10 and 11 ) but when I open my laptop, let me choose what Windows I want to boot and then ASK me for the specific password for the SPECIFIC windows.
So if I put Windows 10 password: ABCD123
and Windows 11 passord: ZZZZ123
When I boot, I want to choose the system like Windows 10 and asks me for Windows 10 password. For now, I have only Windows 11 encrypted ( and not windows 10 ) and when I boot up, it asks me for my Windows 11 password and just then I can choose what System to boot from..
I really don't want when I'm on Windows 11 to have access to Windows 10 and vice-versa.
