How to access data after encryption

HP ProDesk 600 G1 TWR
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)



I'm facing with the problem of launching PC (PN:C8T90AV) with Windows 7 x64  onboard on which the data have been encrypted by the HP Drive Encryption software (version Rev.A), PC have the HP Client Security in version installed.

After the Pre-boot procedure and putting the user password, Windows begins to start and stops when the Windows logo disappears and I can see the black screen and cursor which doesn't move, system is unresponsive.

The same problem occurs when I try to start it in safe mode.

All I want to get are the user's data - unfortunately they have not been backuped.

I have the drive encryption .dat key file generated to recover access to the PC.

Is it possible to decrypt and access data from this disk using the .dat key on a different PC?
