  • Windows™ Vista with SP1 (32-bit/64-bit)

  • Windows™ XP with SP3 (32-bit only)

Firmware interface

  • BIOS: all supported operating systems

  • For devices with UEFI, set the boot priority to Legacy First.

Other software

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (Windows 7 and later operating systems)

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 (Windows XP)

  • Microsoft Windows Installer (Windows XP)

Hard disk

Full Disk Encryption uses software-based encryption for all standard drives (drives without self-encryption).

Full Disk Encryption uses hardware-based encryption for the following self-encrypting drives (SEDs):

  • Seagate DriveTrust drives

  • Seagate OPAL and OPAL 2 drives

  • SanDisk self-encrypting solid-state drives

Full Disk Encryption has the following limitations:

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support endpoints with multiple hard disks.

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support RAID and SCSI drives.

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support eDrive drives for Windows 8 or later environments.

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support GUID Partition Table (GPT) drives.

Hard disk controllers

  • Software encryption: ATA, AHCI, or IRRT hard disk controller

  • Hardware encryption: AHCI hard disk controller
