Bitlocker Encryption without TPM

January 18, 2018

This happens with older computers that don’t have a built in chip but you can bypass the requirement with a GPEDIT change.

Start > Run > gpedit.msc

Goto;

  • Local Computer Policy
    • Computer Configuration
      • Administrative┬áTemplates
        • Windows Components
          • Bitlocker Drive Encryption
            • Operating System Drives

Double click on the entry Require additional authentication at startup and enable the rule. It will give you some other options in there if you want to fine tune but just enabling this will allow you to start the process of encrypting the whole disk.

Now go back to Control Panel > Bitlocker Drive Encryption (or right click the hard drive) and start the process for the option of Boot password or USB key.
