Windows 10: Bitlocker on Dualboot system

    Bitlocker on Dualboot system

    Hello there,
    my question is how to configure (if it is possible) Bitlocker encryption on system drive so I can set to automatically unlock encrypted drives. To be more specific I donīt have TPM feature and am using dual-boot with Ubuntu.
    Setup is following - 1st SSD with Windows 10 and 2nd is with Ubuntu using Grub 2 installed on 1st SSD.
    Is there any possible solution to do encryption and avoid kind of situation I canīt login to my PC ? Maybe with Easy BCD ... I have absolutely no clue if it is related to it and will be grateful for help. Thanks

    I am a bit further solving this problem. To encrypt drive without TPM chip is possible by editing group policy setting.

    So now I probably need to migrate from Grub 2 to Windows bootloader, to be sure I can get into my OSīs after encrypting. Can someone advice me in this step ?
