    I'm trying to secure a few folders by using File Explorer / Advanced Attributes - check "Encrypt contents to secure data" but it does not work.


    System Information / Device Encryption Support gives the following error:

    Reason for failed automatic device encryption: Hardware Security Test Interface failed and device is not modern standby.


    Windows Security / Device Security / Security Processor / Security Processor Troubleshooting gives the following:

    A firmware update is needed for your security processor.


    I don't know what security processor firmware update is needed, nor do I no where to get it.

    I spoke to HP support and they say that they do not support encryption.

    I talked to Microsoft support and no surprise they said that the support has to come from HP.

    Microsoft provides the following link to to get the upgrade to the TPM firmware from HP, but the page can not be found.


    https://support.hp.com/document/c05792935


    I tried clearing TPM - no luck.


    System is an HP Spectre laptop, Windows 10 Pro. The system BIOS has been updated.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  3. Device Encryption Problem on Windows 10 Pro

    I just bought a new HP laptop and Windows 10 Professional on it. I got Windows 10 Pro because I need device encryption. I installed Windows 10 Pro as the directions indicated. Now I am following Microsoft directions to turn on device encryption. In
    checking if device encryption is available on my device, I see in system information that for Device Encryption Support is says "Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: Hardware Security Test Interface failed and device is not InsiantGo, WinRe is not
    configured." So, I cannot access BitLocker. What do I need to do to fix this problem?

    Failed Automatic Device Encryption in System Information

    Hi,

    Windows Hello is a more personal sign-in method introduced in Windows 10. It is not available on all computers.

    You may check these articles for more information regarding Windows Hello:

    What is Windows Hello?

    Windows Hello and privacy

    Regarding the error message: Device Encryption Support Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: Hardware Security Test Interface failed and device is not InstantGo we suggest posting it in
    TechNet since the issue is more
    complex than what is typically answered here in Microsoft Answers forums.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post your query anytime.
