I have Windows 7 Professional systems. Need Windows 7 Enterprise or ultimate edition to use "BitLocker" for "Full disk Encryption?

Yes, you would need Windows 7 business or ultimate, Windows 7 Professional includes not bitlocker.

  • PGP Whole Disk Encryption and Boot Camp Partition

    I use the PGP 10.0 Beta for the last two weeks (it is now been shipped and is the current version), and one of the new features is Whole Disk Encryption on Boot Camp partitions. It works fine - except for the fact that VMWare Fusion 3.0.1 can not load the Boot Camp partition is encrypted (it starts initially, but does not advance beyond what I suppose is the PGP bootloader).

    I know that I can create a virtual machine and run Windows to work around the problem - I'm just curious to know if this is something that VMWare are willing to study and operate now PGP 10.0 has been shipped.

    It seems to be fixed/supported in a future version?

    Thank you very much .

    This looked interesting so I tried myself. I downloaded a demo of PGP 10.0 and encrypted to my hard drive which has OS X 10.5.8 and a Windows 7 Boot Camp partition.

    After starting the machine virtual Boot Camp in Fusion, I see a black screen that says bootguard _

    I guess that's also what you see?

    You're right - it's the PGP bootloader which replaced the Windows loader in the MBR of the physical disk. Fusion accesses the data in the partition through Mac OS X, which already has access to the decrypted data. The boot loader assumes that the drive is always encrypted and fails when he tries to decrypt again.

    Fortunately, Boot Camp VMs include a copy of the MBR (with the boot code and the partition table) in a separate file, so it's very easy to fix:

    #. Start the machine virtual of Boot Camp (not native!) with a Windows CD/DVD installation (or ISO image).

    #. Go to the repair command prompt.

    #. Run the fixmbr command in Windows XP or bootrec /fixmbr in Windows Vista or Windows 7 to replace the MBR code.

    In this way, your Boot Camp virtual machine will use the default Windows boot loader to access the already decrypted data, while the native Boot Camp startup will use code PGP MBR (which is always the physical disk) to access the prompt for the PGP password and decrypt the drive.

    Warnings of boiler plate:

    If you have a subscription, to run out of disk space, problem, then OmniDiskSweeper can help identify the space where goes.  View files and suspected places will help the forum help you to understand.  Don't forget, we can not see in your drive, you must give us information to work with.

    DO NOT delete files in your folder-> Library Home Page tree as there are things like backups of your iPhone, your emails, your application preferences, etc...  If you think that you found something in your file-> Library Homepage which can be removed, you must ask first.

    DO NOT remove the files outside your home folder, you can end up removing something essential to Mac OS X and transform your Mac into a costly "door Stop."

    I want to say that you will find a few very large files in private-> var-> vm (these are Mac OS X virtual memory paging files (swapfiles) and where Mac OS X stores the RAM copy when your Mac is paused).  The swapfile (s) is deleted on reboot, and the sleep image will just be recreated when you put your Mac to sleep.

    If you think that you found something to remove outside your home folder, it would be better to ask first before deleting.  There are many examples of people deleting files outside their home folder, rename files, or change the property or file permissions and then their Mac stops running.  Don't be one of those people.  Ask first.

  • BootCamp Windows does not start after you have enabled disk encryption

    Hello everyone, I am in a desperate situation and I need your help. Here is my sitatuaion.

    I have 13-inch MacBook Pro (early 2011). I put an SSD inside as my main drive and I also put an extra drive (HDD) in the optibay instead of my drive superdrive. The structure, I had was this:

    (1) my entire SSD was my OS X disk.

    2 my HDD optibay had three partitions: partition backup Time Machine, a) b) Extra partition (for stuff like media), c) Windows partition with Windows 7 installed.

    Had that Setup for a long time and everything worked very well, my SSD has been saved on the Time Machine partition on the HARD drive in my optibay.

    Then, I decided to turn on the File Vault 2. First of all I did for the SSD with my OS X on it. Everything went well and I could always start my Windows 7. Then, I decided to encrypt my Time Machine backup (because what's the point to encrypt the main system disk if you do not encrypt the backup as well?) -Here too everything went well.

    In other words, until I needed to start Windows. I have restarted my Mac, hold down option, the picker contraption came, but there was no windows to the choice. I came once before (but), so I knew I could always start in it.

    I jumped into my USB thumbdrive with fairing on it, he chose and he gave my start on the Windows partition option. But this time it did not work, I got an error message saying my there is no bootable device or something like that.

    I have confidence in turning the things of encryption for the partition of Time Machine (which is on the same HDD as my Windows partition) screwed disc here.

    The only question is: can I fix, start Windows, without having to install it from scratch? What I want is to have encryption enabled for both drive my main SSD where I have my OS X installed AND the partition of Time Machine that is on the disk in the optibay HARD and also have a Windows partition on it, but still be able to start Windows.

    I am running 10.11.13 El Capitan.

    Can you help me somehow? Here is my list of cs diskutil:

    Your problem is not related to FileVault2. Your question should have begun when additional Apple_HFS was created. Please after the release of

    sudo fdisk/dev/disk1

    If you have a problem with your Mac, you can potentially lose the SSD and backup TM. It is not an optimal configuration. A TM must be physically separated from your Mac, so you can restore the TM backup to a new Mac, if necessary.

    Also, since you removed the optical drive, re - install Windows on your 2011 model is a very rough road to travel.

  • Error Windows Media Center full disk, but the disk is not full?

    Watching TV Live I get a 'Disk full' error after 10-15 minutes of watching (HD if it matters) telling me to delete recorded programs or assign another drive. I havenotregistered program and my assigned drive has 50 GB of free space with 40 allocated in the WMC settings for recording/tv live (although I have no record).

    I want to wrong thinking that 40gigs of free space should be much to just watch live TV?  It should not just delete the buffer to rewind etc once it fills up?

    PS once I get this message if I closed and reopened WMC, he worked for another 10-15 minutes, then gives the same error.

    Edit - don't know why, but this ended in forum music and sound

    I had the same problem and found that not a single one of these solutions has solved my problem.

    I solved it by making a backup copy of the recorded TV (c:\users\public\public TV recordings) directory and then delete this directory. When you open Media Center, it seems to recreate the directory hidden in the directory recorded TV (\temprec), which is used for the live TV buffer, freeing all the corruption that may have already.
  • URGENT: T420s BIOS v1.29 and PGP Whole Disk Encryption

    ATTENTION!

    I have several portable T420s (4174-2AU). I recently upgraded to 2 of these phones to the latest version of the BIOS (v1.29). These two laptops were more able to access the encrypted drive.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    BootGuard stage2...

    PGPWDE disk data is corrupt...

    My company does not recovery discs, for what reason I don't know. All I know is that I had to reimage the readers. I have tried to quantify again and restarted and received the same error again. So I reconfigured again and has not encrypt the drive. Others say it has to do with the PGP and the Sandy Bridge architecture, but I disagree. I could populate the BIOS with Lenovo's FLASH tools. I descended to v1.25 (download) and THEN encrypted the drive again. After the reboot, there is no problem.

    I hope that no one else has this problem. If you do, here is your solution.

  • Image of XP SP3 not extending the full disk correctly or not displayed correctly.

    I use HP 7600 P4 2 GB, 40 GB HD PCs I have an image (XP, SP3) which included the "ExtendOemPartition = 1" command in the sysprep file. On some installs the image extends to the full 40 GB drive, on others it isn't. Readers who do not extend correctly shows only the image of the original 12 GB total size, but the title of the disk management, the chart displays the entire C drive extended to the total size of the disk 40 GB. So, on one screen, I see the C drive, listed as a 12 GB drive and a 40 GB drive at the same time.

    The only reference I could find for this was http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329826, and that seems to apply only to Windows 2000.

    So, two questions really. :
    1. How can I fix the readers to use the full drive space as it should. A solution that works remotely would preferably like some of the PC already delivered to remote locations. These locations are connected through the VPN and the stations are available with VNC.

    2. How can I prevent the same mistake from happening on future images? At the moment it seems random, and since we use identical hardware, I'm not sure that there are variables to check.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello

  • Cannot access BIOS when OS disk encrypted w / Bitlocker, starting on the USB key is not unlock disc

    Hello

    I enabled Bitlocker on my Acer Aspire 5315. The system partition is encrypted and the data partition. My motherboard doesn't have a TPM chip, so I opted for the unlock with a USB key.

    When I start the PC or wake them from their hibernation, the splashboot (with the logo of Acer) BIOS screen does not display the information below on how to access the BIOS (press F2) or the boot menu (F12). And therefore I can't access those as I used to.

    BitLocker does not account for the USB key, then asks for the password to unlock the HARD drive. Then Windows starts very well.

    However, restart (by a Windows or after you have entered the wrong password Bitlocker too many times), the BIOS splash screen is normal (with how access BIOS and boot menu), I can access BIOS by pressing F2 AND succesfully Bitlocker unlocks the HARD drive with the USB flash drive without having to ask for the password.

    So, my question is how Bitlocker unlock the HARD disk automatically via the USB when the PC starts?

    Thank you for reading.

    Note: I posted this question on http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w8itprosecurity/threads they suggested that I ask the Acer support.

    Thank you also get answers in the TechNet forums.  I'm sorry that you were unable to get a more complete answer it.

    We suggest that you uninstall BitLocker and decrypt the drive to determine if this restores your ability to access the BIOS.

  • Disk management does not recognize the full disk size

  • EliteBook: can I use a boot cd on a portable computer with disk encryption?

    Windows is sprinkled on a laptop with disc encryption.  Is there a way I can use a boot cd to access the drive?  I want to get some files off it first.

    Ok.

    Then the simplest solition would be to remove the hard drive, put in a drive enclosure hard or on a USB to SATA connector.

    Now you can plug it into a usb port of another Windows PC or laptop to your business.

    Use Windows Explorer to access the disk. When the encryption key is requested, type it in.

  • Hard Drive C full disk cleanup does not

    My hard drive C has been fine for a long time.  Then all of a sudden in a period of about a year he started fill by itself.  I would deal with the problem with the disk cleaning and remove programs and files is no longer needed, but every time I did that it would end up a bit more than before (it would mean 40%, then fill up to 65%, then disk clean he would stay to 45% full).

    Now, I have 110 MB of space on a 30 GB C drive, and I've done everything I can.  I ran thousands of times drive cleanup, I have eliminated all the programs that I don't use, and I transferred all my music and movies on my D drive (which is fine).
    I ran several scans, but there seems to be no worm.  I can't do system restore because I did a restore a year ago.
    Is there something I can do, or is editing and re - install Vista my only option?
