Does McAfee Endpoint Encryption support the Advanced Format Drives with Windows XP as the OS loaded?


Sure it does…just not the way some of the devices have their BIOS configured and not officially supported by McAfee of course (see link below). Specifically the Dell E6320 and E6420 laptops have this issue. They comes with “RAID on” selected in the BIOS. If you have Windows XP on the laptop, this RAID configuration, and load McAfee Endpoint Encryption you will not be able to use the laptop. You won’t even be able to log in…

However, if you change the BIOS configuration to “AHCI” it will work…of course you will need to reconfigure your ConfigMgr task sequence to specify a different driver and model and then reimage first.
