This article details how to use Boot Camp with Symantec Drive Encryption and PGP Whole Disk Encryption.
If upgrading an existing installation of PGP Desktop with Boot Camp to version 10.2 or later, see this article
Warning: If PGP Whole Disk Encryption\Symantec Drive Encryption is upgraded on one of your operating systems (Windows or Mac OS X) with Boot Camp that is encrypted, be sure to boot into the other partition and upgrade the PGP Whole Disk Encryption\Symantec Drive Encryption software there as well. Each operating system partition must use the same version on each boot partition. This is due to the Windows installer and PGP Whole Disk Encryption\Symantec Drive Encryption installation, which takes care of updating the BootGuard data for the Windows partition and the Mac OS X installer and PGP Whole Disk Encryption\Symantec Drive Encryption installation updating the PGP BootGuard data for the Mac OS X partition.
To read/write data to the Windows partition from Mac OS X (this includes encryption of the Boot Camp Windows partition for Symantec Drive Encryption for Mac), a 3rd party NTFS driver must added to Mac OS X to support this operation.
Before beginning, be sure Boot Camp is installed correctly. For more information on Boot Camp installation, click here for an Apple Support page.
Warning: Windows XP on NTFS is not supported with Boot Camp and Symantec Drive Encryption on any version.
Initial installation of Symantec Encryption Desktop and Boot Camp

Note: It is okay to wait for Symantec Drive Encryption to complete or encryption can be paused and restarted.
Warning: Perform the Symantec Drive Encryption *only* from the Mac OS X operating system. Symantec Drive Encryption tasks should never be performed on the Windows side. If Running a managed Symantec Drive Encryption client, and auto-encrypt is enabled, there is a risk that encryption could be performed on Windows, which could result in an unbootable machine, so take caution if using this setting so that encryption is done only on the Mac operating system.
