Dell E7470 and Kaspersky Full Disk Encryption

Hello

I see that the E7470 is listed in incompatible devices with Kaspersky Endpoint Security FDE.  It is listed as BIOS for the limitation.  Is anyone aware of any modification on the E7470 that will allow KES to deploy full disk encryption on it?  Is a workaround possible ?  Below is the kaspersky tech article

thanks doug

We are having the same issue and it looks like the bios will have to have an option to disable the intel rapid start technology as that is what blocks the authentication agent from starting during the pre-boot.  Until that option is surfaced in the bios, none of the pre-boot routine encryptions will work.  We tried McAfee's product too with the same result.

We used UEFI boot instead of BIOS. We had to convert to GPT.
