    Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: Un-allowed DMA capable


    Looking through MSINFO32 I see the line:
    Device Encryption Support Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: Un-allowed DMA capable bus/device(s) detected

    What does it mean? My laptop C:\ drive is encrypted the whole thing. Does this mean I have a problem?

    I have these lines too:
    Secure Boot State On
    PCR7 Configuration Bound

    Device encryption in Windows 10 for OEMs | Microsoft Docs

    Scroll down to the section named: "Un-allowed DMA capable bus/device(s) detected".
    See if someone else can help you fill out what you need filled out.

    Gee, thanks for the info. My Google search results returned crap. Consider that link bookmarked. Doesn't really look like I have too much to worry about. Thanks again.

    Here's a lot of results I found using Bing:

    http://www.bing.com/search?q="Device+Encryption+Support+Reasons+for+failed+automatic+device+encryption"

    You can read through some and see if you can figure out what all that is.

    Annoyingly it seems that page has already had some of the information (such as hardware requirements for device encryption) removed since that post.

    All I know, is that since version 1703, a new group policy was added to block new DMA devices when the computer is locked. This is for Bitlocker only, donít know about the Home version of device encryption.

    Disable New DMA Devices when Computer is Locked.

    Do a search for it.

    DMA has been an issue for years and finally MS has added a policy for it

    Good to know. I read up on it and now I am satisfied I have a good working knowledge of the issue.

    Secure boot disabled because you want it that way or it broke? Maybe open a new thread about secure boot. Secure boot and Device Encryption Support Reasons for failed automatic device encryption: Un-allowed DMA capable bus/device(s) detected are different but related. Sounds like your problem deserves a new thread. You'll get better help for your secure boot issue that way.
