Creating a Hidden OS with TrueCrypt - Preparing Your Hard Drive
(Page 2 of 6 )
Before you begin, you will need to meet four requirements:
You have the necessary amount of free space on your hard drive.
You have the ability to boot from a CD/DVD drive or USB flash drive.
You have access to a Windows 7 (or later version) installation disc. The version of Windows contained on the CD must match the version of Windows already installed on your computer.
Your operating system is already activated.
In order for you to create a hidden Windows install, you must have a certain percentage of available free space on your hard drive. Essentially, you are going to create a partition behind your Windows partition. TrueCrypt will use this partition to install your hidden operating system.
The only caveat is you must be able to create a partition at least 5% larger than the amount of used space on your C: partition. This may sound confusing, but I will explain how to accomplish this in the next few steps.
To find out how much available space is on your hard drive, click Start, search for "disk man," and select "Create and format hard disk partitions" from the results list. (Alternatively, you could enter "diskmgmt.msc," the universal Windows command for opening the hard drive management utility).
The Disk Management utility will open and report detailed information about your hard drives and partitions. On most systems, your C: partition should reside on Disk 0, as it does in this example. Depending on the structure of your hard drive, you may have created several partitions on the same hard drive as your C: partition.
As I mentioned earlier, TrueCrypt will use the partition directly behind the C: partition (the third partition) to install the hidden operating system. If your system resembles my example (you have only one hard drive, and one partition [excluding the System Reserved partition]), you will need to create a new partition behind your C: partition. Even if you have other available partitions on your hard drive (or other connected hard drives), TrueCrypt can only use the partition directly behind the C: partition.
