How can this issue be solved?


During the installation of Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption, the error SDE 1087 is displayed. The Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption installation logfile shows the same error.

Please make sure the IDE hard disk is the first boot device in the system, in case you have a system where both P-ATA (IDE) and S-ATA hard disks are installed. Check your BIOS configuration and use the Windows System Information (winmsd) or list the volumes in diskpart, to verify your device configuration.
