Disabling of stolen systems
recently I "lost" my system.
It still checks in into the KACE and I can see that the "thief" has added a new account and uses this one.
I already gave the police the "new" IP address so they may get it back.
But since there are some data on it (encrypted but out of hand), and I don't want that the thief uses this device I need a smart, cost effective way to "brick" the system, so a new installation is needed, that the encrypted partition is really "gone"
I can collect the device on a nearby police station.
Thanks for all nice ideas
When we had a student take one I just toasted her system. Did not have to worry about data though. This killed enough files where it would not boot after
Just a thought, you can actually set a startup password/pin without using TPM.
You set the RegKey, then create the bde partition and just give it a password, can be done in one Script, I do it with the K2. Let me know and I can upload it for you to take a look at.
Then I reckon thief will get so annoyed and leave it. ;)
