Bitlocker TPM problem

i have win7 ultimate running on an amd system and i have tried to enable bit locker but it says it requires TPM but my machine doesn't have TPM. Is there a way to get around this problem.

ok i might of not been specific i am wondering if there is a way to get it to work if TPM is not present

  1. Your boards BIOS must support this feature, and it must be turned on before you can enable it in Windows. If your board doesn't have it, then it is pretty hard to enable a feature that you don't have. If your board does support it, then check the BIOS to make sure it is enabled.
  2. Yes, disable TPM. Create a text file and add the following to it:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE]
    "UseAdvancedStartup"=dword:00000001
    "EnableBDEWithNoTPM"=dword:00000001
    "UseTPM"=dword:00000002
    "UseTPMPIN"=dword:00000002
    "UseTPMKey"=dword:00000002
    "UseTPMKeyPIN"=dword:00000002

    Save and then make sure it has this extension .reg

    Right click on it and add to registry.

    TPM is no longer required...
