    Wrong disk format error when trying to enable FileVault in Macbook Pro

    I wanted to enable the FileVault in my Macbook Pro and now when I do that I end up getting the error message as “due to wrong disk format: some disk formats do not support the recovery partition that needs to be created..” What will be the fix for this problem now? Can someone help me on this? Thank you.

    Hello Dear Friend ...


    Follow the below steps carefully

    Open the " SYSTEM PREFERENCES " first

    Then go to the personal section ...


    Click on the " SECURITY AND PRIVACY "

    After that go to the Security and Privacy pane .. then click FILEVAULT tab

    There click the Lock in the bottom left corner of the Security and Privacy pane


    There enter your Administration username and password for the computer .. Click UNLOCK

    Click "" TURN ON FILEVAULT ""


    Click CONTINUE .. again click Continue option


    At the Prompt , Click RESTART button

    After you Restart your computer and Login the encryption process will start

    So re Run the Installer


    That is it


    VERY GOOD LUCK
