When testing BitLocker encryption on the new Windows 10 1909 release using my VMWare environment. I ran into the following error;
This device cannot use a Trusted Platform Module. Your administrator must set the “Allow BitLocker without a compatible TPM” option in the “Require additional authentication at start-up” policy for OS volumes.
Go to your Local Group Policy
Locate the following setting under Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Windows Components –> BitLocker Drive Encryption –> Operating System Drives
Require additional authentication at startup
We will now need to edit this policy to enable the required settings, please use the below screenshot as your guide.
Once the policy has been enabled with the required settings, re-run BitLocker Drive Encryption and this time it’ll be more successful.
