Anything else

Hacked

Looks like the website was hacked. Only a minor change to the title. Not entirely sure how it happened. Not a great deal in the logs, though I’m not sure when it happened either. Hoepfully I’ve fixed it now but we shall see!

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.

OLD:
Activate Embedded Security On Next Boot
Disable
*Enable

NEW
Activate TPM On Next Boot
Disable
*Enable

To be safe, I’d do a /getconfig and makesure that everything else is right. They’ve changed a few other “Embedded security” tags to be simply “TPM” instead.

manage-bde device is not ready

Bitlocker was prompting me fro the recovery each time I booted. The solution to this is the following:
manage-bde -protectors c: -disable
manage-bde -protectors c: -ENABLE

However I was then told that the device was not ready when enabling it. The solution is to fire up disk management, assign a drive letter to the hidden partition and then give it a go. This worked for me and I was able to enable it fine. I then removed the drive letter.
