I received a new Dell laptop with vista Ultimate.  Tried to initialize BitLocker with dos command and received this error message.     Error: an error occurd while taking ownership of the TPM (code 0x80280023)

Resolution:
I changed bios setting on boot sequence to hard drive first on boot up.  When I followed the rest of instructions on implementation from this article, encryption started and I did not have to run initialize from dos prompt.  Problem solved.
