Drive encryption will not initiate

I recently added a new laptop to our Active Directory and am trying to setup for one of our users. I have made sure to remove any BitLocker/previous encryption that Windows10 may have on the drive and tried to run our deployment tool however it will not encrypt no matter what solution I have tried! I am currently at a loss and need this user to have the laptop ASAP, however I cannot give it to them until the drive has been encrypted.

Re: Drive encryption will not initiate

Please check McAfee DE log for any errors or suggestions where the problem could be:

C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption Agent\MfeEpe.log
