I already know how to create a Kubuntu/Win7 dual boot. What I would like to do is to encrypt both operating systems.
I use Kubuntu as my main OS, and Windows 7 for casual gaming or prolonged Visual Studio programming as gaming is impossible in a VM.
I have looked at TrueCrypt, but it only allows Windows system partition encryption. It also does funny things with GRUB.
BitLocker is out of the equation as I cannot access my Windows files from Kubuntu and I only have Windows 7 Home Premium.
My planned setup is the following: 500GB Hard Drive (Dell Studio Laptop)
~350GB Shared Media Files(Maybe TrueCrypt normal encrypted partition,unsure on filesystem)
Would it be possible to use TrueCrypt(and its bootloader for Win7 and the shared partition, and somehow chainload GRUB for Kubuntu with encrypted partitions?
I am currently experimenting with a dual-booting VirtualBox machine, but no luck so far and it takes a long time to encrypt,despite giving 3 cores and 1536 RAM to the VM.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: I installed Win7 and encrypted it with TrueCrypt. I also encrypted my SHARED partition. Then I installed Kubuntu,installing GRUB to the /boot partition. Now I have an encrypted Kubuntu,with access to Win7 and SHARED, but I CANNOT boot into win7. The TrueCrypt Boot Loader appears,asks for password and redirects me to GRUB. I also tried booting from the TrueCrypt Rescue CD, but with no luck.
