Microsoft are not providing the required standard UEFI interfaces at the moment. They are ignoring the standard, and it's not something we can work around - no hardware interface API is impossible for us to rectify.
Perhaps you could consider McAfee MNE2.0 instead?
Thanks for the quick reply. Microsoft contacted us yesterday and was able to identify that disabling TPM resolved the issue. We have a functional Surface Pro 3 that is encrypted with MDE 7.1.1
MDE was able to install, activate, create the PBFS and begin encryption however we would get a black screen once the system was rebooted. Disabling TPM now allows the SP3 to continue the boot process into Windows.
Anyone has an idea or experniced the same please? It's so urgent I have over 65 surface pro3 Win 8.1 and some works just fine and most are not.
After installing DE 7.1 agent and the provider and after the first restart and conduct a couple of "collect and send", " send events". the status changes Creating Event to request data for local domain users and then stuck on "searching for encryption provider"
We have upgraded to extension DE
UEFI is on latest update.
We are leaning towards MNE at the moment. I think getting MDE to work on these might be more trouble than it's worth.
DE7.1 is working on ~75 surface pro 3. Biggest issue is the tiny preboot screen and we had to change the policy to not lock out after x days since date time resets after the battery dies
Thanks for your input! I totally agree and Microsoft ended up sending a drivers updated in order to fix this issue.
Thanks again for your efforts.
