    Im running Windows Ultimate on my laptop without a TPM, I want to enable bitlocker to protect my data, but as I have no TPM chip I have to use a USB memory stick with the startup key on to start my system. Would the USB Corsair 8GB Padlock 2 Encrypted Flash Drive work with the startup key on to boot from? it adds the extra protection in case I leave the flash stick with the laptop. It apparently works on all computers and games consoles and doesnt require software to be installed, as its more of a pin on the drive itself, so dont see any problems with it, but thought I'd ask.
