I have a need for encryption software I can use with a GPT partition on a Laptop running Windows 8.1. I need to be able to encrypt the operating system drive and force a passcode or PIN at boot.

Bitlocker was my initial choice, however I am having complications with that so it isn't an option. Bitlocker works for encryption just fine, its the PIN prompt I am having issues with. I have tried (DC)DiskCryptor that also did not work. Mangles Windows 8 and needs to be repaired.

What products should I look at?

All other products that I'm aware of have issues that are still being worked out with Windows 8/8.1 - it may be best that you continue to pursue finding a resolution to the PIN-at-boot issue with Bitlocker if no suitable alternatives turn up.

Hi again.
If you got rid of uefi and gpt (not needed for 8), you could use disk cryptor - is that an option? (I know, conversion to mbr will have you reinstall)
