    Hi,I have a user that's unable to use BitLocker to encrypt his drive. Whenever he runs BitLocker, he gets a message saying "The handle is invalid". Not sure what this means, I had the user go into the BIOS and clear the TPM chip, but that did not resolve the issue. Any help would be great.Laptop: HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3Intel Core i7-8650U @ 1.90GHz 10015GB RAMThanks,

    :)

    Need to turn off Bitlocker to install Windows 10

    Hi,

    We suggest doing the following steps again to resolve the issue. To complete the procedure, make sure that you have the following information:

    • You must be able to provide administrative credentials.
    • The drive must be BitLocker-protected.
    To suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption on an operating system drive, please follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel, click
      System and Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Suspend Protection for the operating system drive.
    • A message is displayed, informing you that your data will not be protected while BitLocker is suspended and asking if you want to suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Yes to continue and suspend BitLocker on the drive.

    Let us know how it goes.
