Window 8 Bitlocker Pre-Provisioning

October 26, 2014

In Windows 7, first you install the operating system and after that has completed you can enable the Bitlocker feature and it will encrypt your hard drive.

In Windows 8, you can boot up into the Windows Pre-Installation Environment (WinPE) and Bitlocker can be applied to the drive before operating system installation. This can all be automated by using something like System Centre.

If you enable Bitlocker with Used Space Only selected, and you use Pre Provisioning then encryption can be very fast.
