After encrypting a Dell laptop, (see a list of known models below) PGP BootGuard does not display at boot.
No errors are shown, simply a blank screen is displayed.
This issue is caused by the BIOS version of the laptop. Dell has identified a problem with each laptop that causes the display to remain blank until Windows loads.
Use the following resolutions for the affected laptops.
