Issue

Installation of SafeGuard Enterprise for Windows on MacBook Pro / MacBook Air / Mac Pro / iMac, running Windows 7 Boot Camp fails with the following error: Error 5017. Incompatible hardware configuration detected. Please contact Sophos support.

Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

SafeGuard Device Encryption

Operating Systems
Windows 7 (Mac OS X v10.7 Lion or Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard and the Boot Camp 3.1 Update)

Cause
SafeGuard Enterprise Device Encryption requires hardware that provides BIOS support. As MacBook / Pro MacBook Air / Mac Pro / iMac do not support BIOS but EFI only, SafeGuard Enterprise cannot be installed on those devices.

What To Do

The installation of SafeGuard Enterprise on MacBook Pro / MacBook Air / Mac Pro / iMac hardware aborts in a controlled way due to a flag in the POA configuration file.

SafeGuard Enterprise for Windows does not support the installation on MacBook Pro / MacBook Air / Mac Pro / iMac machines and cannot be installed in a Boot Camp environment.
This restriction is valid until explicitly stated otherwise in the SafeGuard Enterprise for Windows documentation.
