Probook 450 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear expert,

 

I have an HP Probook 450 G2 comes with 500GB of HDD and 4GB of memory. The TPM chip version is 1.2. I have formatted it Windows 10 Pro version 1803. I am planning to deploy Bitlocker on it, but I am wondering if I have to change the configuration of the BIOS from legacy to UEFI to avoid any issue in the future. I am also heard that I need to convert the drive from MBR to GPT.

 

What is the optimal configurations in my case please?

windows 10 and bitlocker should work properly as is with your laptop. however, Microsoft often recommends that users migrate UEFI (with secureboot) and use GPT for Windows 10

Thanks dan for your reply.

 

I have inserted the WIN 10 DVD then presed SHIFT + F10 to open the CMD.

I typed the following commands:

disk part
select disk 0 
clean
convert GPT

I thought the drive is changed to GPT but after booting up the drive i found it is still MBR.

Is it because the BIOS is not changed to UEFI configuration?
