BitLocker.

Posted: 05-08-2007, 04:05 AM
Why I cannot install Bit-locker in my HP TabletPC. Can I install BitLocker
in a TabletPC that Comes with ultimate .64 bits. I do not have TPM in my
TabletPC. Can I still install BitLocker?

You don't necessarily need TPM so long as you have a USB stick drive which
can be used to store the bitlocker code. Check out the instruction for
enabling bitlocker on my website to see if they work for you:

John:

I forgot to ask you the following: I have a PNY 4GB 2.0 USB drive that I am
using for Ready Boost. Can I use that drive for BitLocker Key too? With
anticipated gratitude,

Chees,


Gene

Good question. To be honest I'm not entirely sure, simply because I have
never tried it. The problem is that bitlocker is there for security reasons
and, to be honest, you wouldn't really be wanting such an important piece of
information stored on something you are using to 'allegedly increase
performance. When i have used bitlocker I have used a 256MB USB drive and,
as these are reasonably inexpensive, I would suggest you do the same thing.
The USB drive has to be inserted during boot up and then removed prior to
Vista reaching the desktop - you are prompted to remove the USB drive.

In the case of ready boost it would really depend upon how much space you
have allocated on the USB drive for ready boost to use. Something else you
do have to look at is what happens if the drive you are using for ready
boost becomes corrupted? You can't get into your system. Having a single USB
drive solely for the purpose of bitlocker is a much safer bet.
