I want to try using the Bitlocker to encyrpt my Hdd. When i try to activate it, the system says it cannot find the TPM. I did a bit of reading, and that the TPM is a chip that stores the unlock code to access the Hdd.

It also said i can use a USB Stick to hold the unlock code. I tried that, still wont let me go past the screen about not finding the TPM.

Any help would be great.

"BitLocker can also be used without a TPM. To use BitLocker on a computer without a TPM, you must change the default behavior of the BitLocker setup wizard by using Group Policy, or configure BitLocker by using a script. When BitLocker is used without a TPM, the required encryption keys are stored on a USB flash drive that must be presented to unlock the data stored on a volume."
