Bitlocker on S205

Hi folks,

I ordered a Lenovo S205 and would like to know if I can use the Bitlocker-Feature of Windows 7 Ultimate.

I couldn't find posts on this topic.

 

Thanks so far,

 

Memyselfandi.

Re: Bitlocker on S205

Hi MeMyselfAndI, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Microsoft has some good help on BitLocker. I would start there:

Hope this helps!

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Hi bananaman,

 

thanks for your answer.

I wanted to know if the S205-HDD supports TPM so I can install Bitlocker and use the password protection.

As far as I know TPM is needed to use passwort protection. Without TPM Bitlocker can only be used with a keyfile on an USB-Stick.

It doesn't have a TPM chip. As you said, you would need a separate USB stick. Check out the ThinkPad X121e. This should have a built-in TPM.
