Bitlocker

Is there anyone here that really knows Bitlocker for Win7 and can possibly help me? I have followed every recommendation I can find on the net and I cannot get the system to require the TPM pin at startup.

Note that Bitlocker is not supported by all versions of W7. Only Ultimate and Enterprise.

If you have one of those versions, see if this helps: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...(v=WS.10).aspx

If no good, what exactly is (or is not) happening? Any errors?

Bill,

I have already tried following the steps in the referenced MS article with no success.

So here is what I did. I Unencrypted the C Drive. I changed the policies as many internet articles suggested. I started the Bitlocker Wizard to encrypt the C Drive. The wizard failed stating policy conflicts. I did this over and over again after changing the startup authentication polices one by one. I have it working now, but the policy changes required are documented nowhere that I can find. There IS a note in the policy change window that say only one of the four policies can be active. I had to disable the other three. Hope this does not cause other problems.

Me too. I sure would recommend you keep an unencrypted copy of all your data files in a safe place (like a bank safety deposit box), just in case.
