MDT 2010 automatically creates a bitlocker partition of size 300 mb on Partition 2.
How can I force the creation of the bitlocker partition on Partition 1 ?

If you performing a “new computer” deployment using Lite Touch, MDT 2010 will automatically create a 300MB partition after the System partition so as to make sure that there is enough space for a Windows RE image. There is a variable, DoNotCreateExtraPartition, that can be set to “YES” via CustomSettings.ini to skip this if you want to purposely ignore the default behavior. You can set this parameter and manually create the system partition.
Caution: This property value must be specified in uppercase so that the deployment scripts can read it properly.

Thanks for the answer.
BUT I do not want to use the DoNotCreateExtraPartition property. I want to have both partitions created BDEDrive in partition 1 and OSDisk in partition 2.
