Michael, what did you you try and to what result. You need to provide details.

You can only use a trick: start windows2go (Windows 10) from a USB stick, encrypt c: of win7 using a password and the encryption algorithm AES256 (NOT XTS_AES256, aka the "new" method, since win7 does not work with it). Done.
Else, there is no way with win7 pro since it does not support BL on its own.
