hello, sorry if this has been previously answered.
 
i have a hdd (windows xp pro) encrypted with symantec safeboot 5.1. i would like to make a vhd of this disk image for portability. my goal would be to run disk2vhd on the active windows xp image to create the vhd.
 
any issues or gotchas in creating a vhd from a safeboot encrypted disk? btw, i would expect the need to do a safeboot log-in on the vhd, just like i have to do on the physical hdd when booting.
 
thanks so much!

I wish to also use the Disk2VHD on a safeboot encrypted disk.
 
I get the error message:
 
Safeboot has been corrupted (error 92h)
 
Thought I'd reinforce that others are looking to do this as well.

I don't know if you have tried this, but what if you do the following sequence:
  1. Unencrypt the safeboot drive
  2. Create the vhd (run disk2vhd)
  3. Boot the vhd
  4. Run safeboot from within the VM
