2 encryptions; 1 PC - no pun intended

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate custom built PC. I have 2 physical drives; 1 for OS and 1 for personal.

The personal drive was encrypted with BitLocker. Unfortunately I cannot run BitLocker on OS drive+partition due to the mobo not having TPM capabilities. I still want the OS partition encrypted and was looking to TrueCrypt but since not supported, am here at VeraCrypt. My end goal is to create a pin/password that unlocks the OS partition without the need of a USB flash/thumb drive or long recovery password.

So, my question is, is it safe to use 2 encryption software packages on 1 PC as long as they are on separate physical drives? This would be me using VeraCrypt on OS partition/drive and keeping BitLocker on the personal drive.

Forgive my ignorance and thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, you can do what you asked :)

However I would recommend decrypting everything and then using just VeraCrypt for both your boot drive and storage drive.
