Accessing Bitlocker Encrypted Drives

Accessing Bitlocker Encrypted Drives

April 24, 2017

The Tip of the Night for January 4, 2016 noted that you need a PC with the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip in order to access a Bitlocker encrypted drive.   There is actually a way around this limitation.

 

Click on your start button, enter 'run', and then enter gpedit.msc to open the Group Policy Editor. 

 

You then browse to ocal Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > BitLocker Drive Encryption > Operating System Drives, then click 'Require additional authentication at startup'.   

 

 

Choose the enabled radial button, and then check off the box that allows Bitlocker without TPM chip.
