    bitlocker requests PIN. Change the screen?

    Using Windows 7 Enterprise laptops that have Bitlocker running, with a PIN required at startup. All's fine.

    Is there a way to customize the startup screen with a simple message:
    "If found, call xxxx. Reward for return"

    Currently the screen just says:
    Code:
    Windows Bitlocker Drive Encryption PIN Entry
    Enter the PIN for this drive.
    __________
    Drive Label: PCName c: 5/1/2011
    Use the HOME and BACKSPACE keys to clear incorrect characters.
    Press ENTER after the PIN is typed.  Press ESC for recovery.
    ENTER=Continue                ESC=Recovery
    I looked at manage-bde.exe, but that doesn't seem to have any such option.
    Really - even a screen that comes up before the PIN entry screen would be fine.

    Seems you'll have to resort to a sticker on the machine. ;-))

    cheers, Paul

    OK. Thanks. The only place I saw something remotely like changing this screen is from this company that created malware to steal the PIN: http://testlab.sit.fraunhofer.de/con...cker_skimming/
