Windows 7: Bitlocker on C partition - how to add PIN code?

Bitlocker on C partition - how to add PIN code?

Hi all! I have a hp laptop (HP 6730b) and two partitions, C (system) and D. I have tried bitlocker, I encripted C drive, everything works fine, but I cannot choose a pin code for C partition...

When I started to encript C drive, there's no way to type my password/my pin code, I could only save my recovery key to my pendrive...

I don't know, my simple windows user password is enough? I heard that it's easy to hack that, so I hope bitlocker will be safer, if it's ask password immediately after I power on my laptop...

(I know that if somebody disassemble my laptop and put my hard drive to another pc, it won't work because tpm... But I want to choose a password, which is needed immediately after I power on my laptop, is it possible?)

Thank you for help!

You could always set a user password...

Go to;

Start

Control Panel

User Accounts

"Create a password for your account"

You would have to start over again. The options to enter a TPM Pin are at the start of the bitlock wizard.

TPM is easily bypassed as well : /

You can add a PIN protector to your existing set-up via the BitLocker command line.

Make sure you have your Recovery Key securely backed up so you don't become one of those people who lose access to their BitLocker-protected data.

Sounds like smoke and mirrors if you ask me.

but it's not a password to bitlocker, it's a password, which can be easy hacked, isn't it?
