Windows To Go + Bitlocker

Recommended Posts



i followed several tutorials and now i am able to deploy Windows To Go. However, i have a problem with Bitlocker. For the activation i use the program "osdbitlocker_wtg.exe" with the parameters "/enable /pwd:ad" but the task sequence breaks off with the error code "000000ff". In the smsts.log i don´t see any clear error messages.

Do i need to configure any GPO´s? In the tutorials they didn´t mention it at all.


Here is the part from the smsts.log:

Ideas? ;-)


Best regards



After check "Disable 64-bit file system redirection" the exit code is "3221225477" and error code "C0000005".


EDIT-2: With 2012 R2 there is a newer version of "OSDBitLocker_wtg.exe". Changed the files, everything is fine now ;-)
