I want to encrypt my Windows 10 with BitLocker without affecting my existing EndeavourOS Linux installation—any potential issues?

Hello :slight_smile: , my Thinkpad is setup as a dual-boot system with W10 without SecureBoot. I have encrypted my home in EndeavourOS and now I would like to encrypt W10 with bitlocker. Is there a potential problem now, encrypting by bitlocker out of windows without hurting my linux installation? The thing is, EndeavourOS is cooked and ready to be served, i would like to prevent a new installation :smiley: … Grazie mille!

yes bitlocker is applied on all the disk ,
prefers if possible to add another SSD inside

All right, that’s too bad for my setup :grimacing: :upside_down_face:. Thank you :slight_smile:
