comment How can I encrypt my Windows 8 laptop?
@techie007 "No research effort"? I have basically said that Truecrypt doesn't support my setup, I'm not particularly interested in Bitlocker for a variety of reasons, and I'm wondering if there are any other options?

@Ramhound it's one of those uberlocked down UEFI secure boot machines. Trust me, I've spent 3 full (10+ hours of trying each) days over the past month trying.

@ramhound the laptop won't boot from a non-gpt partition. I tried running Linux on it, and it doesn't quite work.

I use the cloud for my keepass (dropbox), and I also make periodic backups to a encrypted USB key.
