    Bitlocker Error with GPO in Windows 8

    Dear All,

    We are facing an issue with bitlocker on Windows 8 machines since its not encrypting Hard disks through GPO. we are getting the below error on the log files

    failed to initiate drive encryption with the following exit code: 80070057

    We are using the same GPO for windows 7 machines and its working completely fine and also Bitlcoker_to_go is working fine with both OS's.

    Friends, is there anything specific in GPO to check for bitlocker encryption in windows 8?
