I have a client with the following problem. They would like to
encrypt all of their Windows workstation drives, but if they do that,
the machines require manual intervention to enter a key on every
reboot. Why is this a problem? Because installations and upgrades of
many kinds of Windows software require multiple reboots, and they
don't want to have to manually intervene on every machine in their
buildings in order to push out software and patches.

(The general threat model in question is reasonably sane -- they
would like drives to be "harmless" when machines are disposed of or if
they're stolen by ordinary thieves, but on the network and available
for administration the rest of the time.)

Does anyone have a reasonable solution for this?
