How to Authenticate with EETech/DETech

The first step to remove Drive Encryption is to Authenticate. There two ways to authenticate in EETech/DETech, via File or Token. By file, you must export from ePO the .xml file for that particular system. By token, you must provide user and password of a user that has successfully login to the system.

Requirements before we start:

Export the .xml file for the system that you will be working on.

To authenticate by “File” follow the next steps:

  1. Boot to a bootable CD with the EETech/DETech tool. On the first screen click on the button “Enable USB”, this would allow us to use the .xml file that was exported to a USB.
  2. You would be prompt that USB has been enable, click “OK“.
  3. Next your are going to click on “File“.
  4. On the next windows select the USB device, for this example my USB device is on “D:”. Then select the xml file that was exported. For this example mine is “Win7ES-01.xml“, then clock “OK“.
  5. If you authenticated correctly, the Authentication status will display “Authenticated with File“.

To authenticate with “Token” follow the next steps:

  1. Once you have bootupt to the EETech/DETech tool. On the first screen click on the “Token“.
  2. Next you will need to provide “User” name,  of a user that has sucsefully login, then click “Next“.
  3. On the next screen enter the password for the user and click “Start”,
  4. If you suscefully autheticate with Token, the status shoud change to “Autheicated with Token“.
