I've been looking everywhere. Truecrypt forums and over the Ubuntu forums. I have yet to find an answer that comes close to my issue or question. My computer came with Windows 7 preinstalled so I have no live disc. The more I get to know Ubuntu the more I grow to love it. I have tried to install Ubuntu along side Windows 7 on both C and D drives of the encrypted disk. When I restart truecrypt asks for password like normal then on first go will load ubuntu, but Ubuntu will start then go to a screen with error messages. Off the top of my head it was on the lines of "network time out" or 'time expired error." I really am getting sick of Windows. To much garbage in its being. Is there anyway to get the installation to run after the whole system is encrypted? Or will I have to unencrypt, install, then re-encrypt (huge pain in the butt if so for wait time as it writes over)? Any help on this would be wonderful. thanks.

have you seen this howto in the Ubuntu forum?

It describes how to setup an dual boot environment with full encryption.
