  2. Can't use BitLocker on Tablet to encrypt system drive C:

    on my Tablet (TrekStor SurfTab Duo W1 WiFi) i upgraded Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro specially to be able to use BitLocker.

    now it turns out, that BitLocker isn't able to encrypt my internal system drive C:

    to me for an unknown reason.

    i know, because the tablet doesn't have a permanent keyboard attached, BitLocker may see that as not fulfilling the minimum requirement.

    but i can force to ask for a PIN via BitLocker policies.
    but BitLocker always give me that error message after a check:

    "[Window Title]
    BitLocker Drive Encryption

    [Main Instruction]
    BitLocker could not be enabled.

    [Content]
    The data drive specified is not set to automatically unlock on the current computer and cannot be unlocked automatically.

    C: was not encrypted.

    [Close]

    "

    the strange thing is, if i force BitLocker to use a PIN and BitLocker starts to check the system, after a reboot i get the mask that ask me for the PIN as expected - so that part is working, but after login, i get again that error message.

    and when i do the encryption of drive c: without let BitLocker check the system first, after a reboot, i'll get asked for the PIN - so far so good, but then after the it looks like Windows will boot as usual, windows boots into recovery mode and prepares the
    recovery decryption of drive C: and asking me for the long BitLocker recovery key.
    so, what the **** is going on. why isn't BitLocker working on that system drive on my Tablet?

    system recovery is enabled and working,

    TPM 2.0 is avtive and working - that's, what tpm.msc is telling.

    the PIN is working as well, when i want to have a PIN.
    BitLocker can encrypt and unlock encrypted external drives and SD cards without any problems.

    i only have trouble with system drive C:

    any hints, how i can manage BitLocker encrypting my system drice C: ?
