http://serverfault.com – We are running a new Windows 2008 R2 Server on Dell PowerEdge R620 Hardware. I am trying to enable BitLocker Encryption on the C Drive, I have already enabled the TPM from the BIOS. During the phase where it checks your computers configuration, we get an error that says "BitLocker Setup requires the drive file system to be NTFS. Convert the file system and run BitLocker Setup again. " The C Drive is in fact NTFS, but we have noticed that there are a couple extra partitions that were added automatically by Dell, mainly a 39 MB OEM partition, and a 2GB Partition Marked "OS" that is FAT32.
