Ive been trying out bitlocker on my old laptop (so no tpm for that matter none of my pcs do) I have it up and running from a usb pen no problem pc fails to boot without pen drive so im happy all policies seem to be applied so i assume the cert i created will work if i need to recover and it dumped a copy of the recovery key to netlogon(its a vm i couclnt be bothered to create a share). Now the only way i can see to add a pin seems to require a tpm so
manage-bde -protectors -add c: -TPMandPIN
just says no you dont have a tpm and pin on its own just errors. Any ideas?
