My workplace allows for remote logins to the company network, with certain prerequisites for securing a computer before making the connection, one of which is that Windows must be used to make the connection, and that Bitlocker must be used to secure the physical hard drive on which Windows is installed.
I am not being asked to set up my home computer for this, but I thought it might be a good idea. I am planning to purchase a new computer which comes with Windows 7 pre-installed, to install Ubuntu Linux on a separate hard drive, and then to set that hard drive as the first to boot. That way GRUB2 will allow booting into either operating system, and each operating system is independent of the other, each ignoring the other's hard drive. This is how my current computer is set up.
My question is whether I can encrypt the Windows 7 hard drive with Bitlocker in such a setup, without interfering with Linux or with GRUB2, and if I can, how best to go about it.
