Windows 7: Cannot turn on BitLocker for my drives

Cannot turn on BitLocker for my drives

I just did a clean install on a notebook on which I've created multiple partitions.

I managed to get BitLocker to be able to turn on for the drive C:\ but I do not see an option on the rest of the partitions when I right-click.

Has anyone ever encountered such problems? I did some searches on Google which led me to methods that showed me how to turn on this and that, but all of them did not help at all. I need to get this done soon as I'll be starting college again and I do not want my roommates going through my stuff.
