I was giving a presentation the other day about SCVMM and our experiences. In the conversation a question was brought up "can you use Bitlocker in a Virtual Environment". Ben Armstrong wrote a nice little article on just how you do this.
Up until recently, I thought it was impossible to use BitLocker drive encryption under Virtual PC / Virtual Server (because the virtual machines do not have a TPM for BitLocker to use). However, thanks to Pascal Sauliere, I now know how to do this. It is a bit complicated - so let’s get started:
And there you have it - BitLocker is now enabled on your virtual machine. If you have the virtual floppy disk attached - the virtual machine will boot. If you do not have the virtual floppy disk attached - you will need to provide the security code generated by BitLocker in order to access Windows.
This will work on Hyper-V also and before the old bitlocker peps kick in to gear, the EULA has been updated to allow this configuration: http://download.microsoft.com/documents/useterms/Windows%20Vista_Ultimate%20and%20Ultimate%20SP1,%20Supplemental_English_d512375b-79d7-41e5-852d-45f69f7378dd.pdf
