I have laptops with Windows 7 enterprise installed and don’t have TPM modules in these laptop. Our management is concerned about the security of the data on the laptops if stolen or lost and have asked me to encrypt the laptop drive.

Is it possible to set up bit locker on Window 7 Enterprise laptops without using TPM and I would like to set password for the encryption.
Whenever the laptop boots, I would like to laptop to prompt for the password and when the user keys in the password, it must get into windows.

Also I would like the save the password (Keys) to Active Directory. In case the user forgets the password, we must be able to recover the password for them.

Please can step by step tutorial be posted and Thanks in advance.
