    I have Bootcamp installed with Windows 7 installed on my MBP, and I was wondering if I turn on Bitlocker it either won't work, or screw up my mac partition.So does bitlocker work with bootcamp?

    Called Microsoft

    After getting transfered from apple to Microsoft support, i finally found an answer. They say it won't mess with the Macintosh partition and it would work fine.That was half an hour well spent:)

    Where is BitLocker storing the key?

    Where is BitLocker storing the key: On a USB ThumbDriver, some other drive/partition, or in a TPM chip within the laptop?
