I have to say this one caught me out. I’m just setting up a task sequence to deploy Windows 8 and pre-provision BitLocker (which is wicked fast by the way!) and got caught with enabling and activating the TPM from WinPE. The solution I came up with works for me, on a Samsung Series 7 Slate but might not work for all hardware vendors (TPM is a little tricky like that).
The process turned out to be pretty simple.
The final effect takes advantage of Windows 8’s used space only encryption and starts encryption before the OS is even deployed, encrypting as the OS deploys – the net result is a fully encrypted machine within minutes!
Don’t forget to download Windows Server 2012, System Center and Windows 8 Enterprise to try this out and take a look at my other posts on System Center.
Hi, I looked for both to “setup.exe /s” and “setup.exe /r” but could not find it so I can edit. Can you assist?
I believe he is referencing the shutdown.exe commands and not setup.exe
Hi, can this be implemented for MDT or is this strictly for SCCM2012SP1
If your goal is to enable bitlocker in windows, it's easier if you use EASEUS partition master professional to hide and unhide your drive. You can also add a password to enter the Application EASEUS, so that can not be accessed by unauthorized users.
