Bitlocker Dual Boot

Posted: 10-05-2007, 06:54 PM
Hi,

I dual boot with XP and have enabled bitlocker on my Vista partition.
Everything is working fine. I have to insert the usb key to boot
vista, but I can boot xp without the usb key.
Is there a way to require xp to have the key to boot also, effectively
locking the notebook.
Sorry for the english, my third language.

No. XP has no knowledge of BitLocker, so it has no ability to ask for a USB
drive. If you want protection for your XP partition, consider a BIOS
password. You will, of course, have to enter this even when you want to boot
to Vista, too -- because this is required before any operating system loads.
