    Hi All,
    I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 and apperently it does not have a TPM chip.
    Does anyone know how to install Bitlocker without that feature?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Yes, you can use a usb key to authenticate at boot.
    But your BIOS needs to support reading usb devices at boot.
    It's very easy to do & find instructions on google.

    Gary - just fyi that I have an I9400 and Bitlocker works fine on it (once you
    make the local security policy change as per the Bitlocker doco to allow it to
    work without TPM)
