This seems to be a recurrent problem with McAfee Endpoint Encryption. Which version are you using, as the fix may differ depending on this.

AFAIK, all the data on the drive will be encrypted; not just the boot sector.

It should tell you what version of EEPC is installed as part of the error message. For example:

(source: McAfee Support Community - EEPC has been corrupted - yet again - McAfee Support Community)

If you don't want to recover any data, then a reinstall will probably be quickest. Whether you are able to do this will depend on your system. If you can get into the UEFI, you might be able to do a Secure Erase of the SSD from within or boot from a live disc to delete the partitions. Note that doing this will make the existing data on the drive unrecoverable.
