    Bitlocker Encryption stays at 0%

    I am using a WD 320Gb drive with AHCI enabled
    Intel G33TL board without TPM

    Windows Vista Enterprise 64bit (Orginally Chinese with English MUI
    installed)

    I've configured it to run bitlocker with a USB flash drive

    the computer then rebooted, and after logon into windows

    the drive starts encryption and then it stays at 0%

    Leave it for a while. It will probably take 12+ hours to encrypt a drive that
    large.

    so, I should reduce the partition size of the system volume?

    Surely, you mean the boot volume (the one with the system files) and not the
    system volume (the one with the boot files)? :-)

    No, I wouldn't. As long as it keeps going you will eventually end up with a
    fully encrypted volume. It will just take a while to complete.

    That is actually the correct terminology. The system volume holds the files
    that boot the computer, and the boot volume holds the system files.
