Bitlocker usage on Windows 2008 Server

I have a Windows 2008 Server (SP2, not R2) through which I have encrypted several external drives through Bitlocker.  

Those drives appear to only have the Windows Vista level of functionality.  When I plug them into a Windows 7 machine, it says as much.

How can I update Windows 2008 to have the Windows 7 bit-locker to go level of functionality. (passwords instead of keyfiles)

I'm hoping there's an update that I can apply.

Hello, yes, its included, but only with the Windows Vista functionality.  I would like encrypted drives created by Windows 7 to be readable by Windows 2008 Server.
