I have a Windows 7 Enterprise laptop. When attempting to turn on Bitlocker i get the following message; ""A required TPM measurement is missing. If there is a bootable CD or DVD in your computer, remove it, restart the computer, and turn on BitLocker again. If the problem persists, ensure the master boot record is up to date"

There is not CD dvd or drive attached to the laptop.

TPM is enabled in the Bios. Has anyone come across this problem or know a solution to the problem?

here's how i did it:

installing windows 7 along with 100mb partition - sysprep and shutdown
capturing only the c: drive (installation) into a .wim file.

deploying onto a clean disk as following:

creating a 100mb partition as c: (ntfs, active, label="system reserved")
creating a second partition and assigning letter d: (ntfs, label="windows").
applying the captured .wim onto drive d:
using "bcdboot.exe d:\windows" so the bios can find the installation.
windows boots up and once i'm on the desktop the partition with windows is now c: and the former 100mb c: drive is my system reserved partition with no drive letter.

Strange thing is that on one of the laptops i have imaged, Bitlocker went on fine. On two others that users are currently using and were imaged from the same file as the one that worked fine gave the error i have listed above. Don't understand how that could happen.
