6570b bitlocker tpm enable

I was having a lot of trouble enabling the TPM in my task sequence in SCCM for the 6570b. Using the biosconfigutility part of SP52095 I discovered that HP have for some inexplicable reason, changed the command to enable the TPM.

Bitlocker was prompting me fro the recovery each time I booted. The solution to this is the following:
