Bananenbieger Posted October 7, 2010 Share Posted October 7, 2010 Hi! I need to encrypt the drive on my computer including the system partition with Windows (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit) with Bitlocker and wonder if I could use a Corsair Flash Padlock 2 device for the Pre-Boot Authentication. Since my computer doesn't come with a TPM I can only use a keyfile stored on a USB drive for authentication and I also can't use a PIN or password for additional security, so here the PIN used with the Padlock 2 would come in handy. As far as I understand how the Padlock 2 works, it doesn't depend on any software running under an OS and it should work with any device that supports normal USB flash drives including new TVs or the Xbox 360, so I expect it should also work on a computer with Bitlocker before Windows did boot. Am I correct and did anyone maybe ever try this? Oh and I know about TrueCrypt and some other software for encryption but it needs to be Bitlocker in my case ;): Thanks :): Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
