BitLocker – Taking Ownership of TPM Using Command Line – Windows Vista

If you are using Bitlocker, you will need to initialize TPM chip once the right TPM driver is loaded, which it can be done in two different ways, either by using the TPM MMC (simply type tpm.mcs) or configure it from the command line.

2.    Enter the following command:

cscript manage-bde.wsf –tpm –takeownership -<password>
