    Bitlocker Not Enabling


    I just started up Bitlocker, and completed most of the process, but the program ever got around to encrypting. I assume this is due to system administrator lock-out, but I've confirmed I have sys admin privileges. This is a brand-new computer without a network.


    Attached is the screenshot of what I see - Bitlocker is 'enabled', but obviously not on. I restarted my computer, and no Bitlocker login screen. Come to think of it, it encrypted the info, but didn't ask for a password.


    Help is much appreciated!

    BitLocker won't enable on Windows 10 after update on Aug 9

    Hi Brenda,

    I would be happy to assist you.

    Before I assist you I would like to know the information below,


    • Do you have a Windows 10 copy of the operating system?

    I suggest you check whether the Bit locker is ON or OFF using the steps below.

    Can you verify if BitLocker is enabled or disabled on your device? You can Enable/disable BitLocker by going to Desktop and follow these steps:


    • Swipe Right to Left to bring up the Charm.

    • Choose Settings.

    • Choose Control Panel.

    • Select BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    • Verify whether BitLocker is on or off on each device.
    Also I suggest you to enable the WinRE so that you can enter the bit locker key and proceed.

    When WinRE is disabled, you cannot enable BitLocker, and you receive an error message that resembles the following.

    This PC doesn't support entering a BitLocker recovery password during startup. Ask your administrator to configure Windows Recovery Environment so that you can use BitLocker.

    The solution would be to manually enable the windows recovery environment:


    • Copying the winre.wim file from c:\windows\system32\recovery\ to a folder on a recovery partition. (The partition need to have a drive letter at this point.)

    • Set the RE Image path. Example: reagentc /setreimage /path r:\recovery\windowsre

    • Enable RE with command: reagentc /enable

    • (You may remove the drive letter for the recovery partition after you have done this.)

    • Bit locker will be enabled.
    If the issue still persists, suggest you to post your query on the below link.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831507(v=ws.11).aspx

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Thank you.

    Bitlocker Not Enabling

    BitLocker refuses to enable

    SarahKong: Inserting a flash drive would help if I could at least get past the error that the GPO isn't set. Step 1 (Enable BitLocker) in the article you specified is where my issue lies ... I can't even turn on BitLocker. Step 3 is where the flash drive
    would come into play, but I can't get past step 1.

    Andrea Da Costa: We don't set these GPOs in our domain, and I've tried gpupdate /force and a reboot to no effect.
