    Setup BitLocker Encryption On Win 10 Pro 64Bit Solid State Drive(SSD)?


    Hi,

    I am running BitLocker encryption on two other Win 10 Pro 64Bit desktop computers with HDD's,
    but can't seem to get my other Win 10 Pro 64Bit desktop with SSD drive to work?

    I can get as far as rebooting to test the system with BitLocker,
    but after reboot it says: "BitLocker could not be enabled"?
    (just boots normally to desktop - not asking for BitLocker password like it should)

    Any ideas on how to make this BitLocker work on SSD(Solid State Drive) on Win 10 Pro 64Bit?
    Thanks!

    Jesse

    :)

    Bitlocker On Win 10 pro 64bit

    Hi all,

    I've been having a bit of trouble trying to get Bitlocker working on my Dad's laptop. He recently bought a new laptop with Win 7 pro and I upgraded it to Win 10. It all went smoothly except now when I'm
    trying to get Bitlocker to encrypt his drive.

    It has an ssd but is partitioned already. As far as I can tell it doesn't have the TPM chip as it was a cheapy laptop but I have managed to enable it through GP but when I try to run it I get the message
    in the screenshot below and I can't seem to find much info on it. Some suggest it's to do with partitions and I also ran the BdeHdcfg command to no avail.

    Any help to get this encrypted for him would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jamie

  4. Setup BitLocker Encryption On Win 10 Pro 64Bit Solid State Drive(SSD)?

    Not Able to Enable Hardware Based Bitlocker Encryption On Surface Pro 4 (Windows 10 Pro)

    Ok, I have a feeling that this is a larger Windows 10 issue, but I am experiencing this with the Surface Pro 4, the ideal test hardware for anything Microsoft, right? Setup BitLocker Encryption On Win 10 Pro 64Bit Solid State Drive(SSD)? :)

    Here is what we are trying to accomplish:

    Encrypt our Surface Pro 4's (win 10 Pro) using Hardware-Based Encryption

    Why?

    A) Because it is faster for the SSD to perform the encryption rather than the process, since the SSD is already encrypted

    B) Better battery life (because the processor is not encrypting the volume)

    C) Performing software encryption on an already encrypted volume defeats many of the internal optimizations that SSDs have built in (leading to slower performance)

    How?

    We have taken stock Surface Pro 4s, straight from the box. No applications or updates have been installed, we have not added to a domain. The only modification we have made is to the Local Group Policy:

    Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Bitlocker Drive Encryption/Operating System Drives

    *Require additional authentication at startup (Enabled, default options)

    *Enable use of BitLocker Aauthentication requireing preboot keyboard input on slates (Enabled, default options)

    *Configure use of hardware-based encryption for operating system drives (Enabled, default options)

    What's Wrong:

    When I go to enable Bitlocker, I am being provided the prompt to encrypt Used Only, or Whole Drive. From all of the literature I have read, this prompt indicates Software Encryption. When I select Full Drive, it takes a while (over 10 minutes) to encrypt.
    Again, from my reading, Hardware

    Encryption should be immediate (as everything is already encrypted).

    Question:

    What am I missing? Is there an issue with Hardware Encryption that I have not been able to identify on the Surface Pro 4? Is this an OS issue? Are there any other troubleshooting steps that I can take a look at? Again, these are stock units, fresh out of
    the box from Microsoft.
