How to install DiskLock
almost essential to remember that DiskLock has to be
installed on a computer wich just has an Operative System.
We support only the following O.S.:
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP.
Unlock Code will be given to you by mail from our Customare
Service once you have given us your Activation Code.
We suggest you to use a uninterrutable power system
during the DiskLock installation. That's to be sure
that an energy interruption could not compromise the
pc's restart and data.
We also suggest to make a hard backup of your exisisting
data on a removable media (cd, dvd, cartridge, etc...)
BEFORE installing DiskLock.
To install the program you have to boot via a bootable
floppy disk, then, on the DOS line command prompt, after
inserting our diskette with the program, you have to
digit the word "disklock" and press ENTER
on your keyboard..
The program will show you the device drive where it
will be installed and will show you an Activation Code
standing by to the request of the necessary Unlock Code.

disk. So, if you want to put this hard disk inside a different
computer, it will continue to be protected by DiskLock
Once you have inserted the right Unlock Code, you must

you will be asked to put a personal password that will
protect since now and forever your computer against anyone

password that is not smaller then 8 characters), then

it was correct, so please digit it again and press ENTER.

the installation.When you will enter the "y"

of the hard disk. Then will install
its own loader.
the end of the installation, you'll be asked to create
an Emergency Disk. It is useful when for any reason
will be damaged the startup information that DiskLock
uses to load at each pc re-start, we suggest you to
create this Emergency Disk now as you cannot do it in
a second time. If, for some reason, you don't want to
create it you can simply remove the installation floppy.
Insert floppy and press any key...
this point, DiskLock will ask you to restart the pc.
Remove floppy and press any key...
the Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems will be necessary
after the first re-start to enter the pc as Administrator.
DiskLock will update again the system and will restart
the machine for the last time.

system protected against any other eyes except yours!
