bitlocker drive encryption RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi, can someone explain to me how bitlocker works.
    I originaly had the windows 7 RC on a western digital 80 gigabyte SATA harddrive i tried to enable the bitlocker but it said that i needed a TPM (trusted platform module).
    I have recently installed an Hitachi 1terabyte SATA harddrive and decided to re-install windows 7 RC onto this drive, and i reformatted the old 80 gigabyte drive so it is now empty.
    Both drives show up on windows. But i can't use bitlocker on the Hitachi harddrive as again it says i need a TPM, but i can use bitlocker drive encription on the empty harddrive ?????????????? i'm confused !!!!!!
