    windows 11, version 21H2Model of your computer - HP Spectre x360, not sure on the exactThe issues with Windows and Microsoft that I've had over the years are getting to the point of ridiculousness to say the least.But long story short - I was using my laptop all fine for the past year since I bought it, updated it to Windows 11 some time ago and today whilst trying to boot it up to get some work done I get an error message from BitLocker to enter a recovery key because "Secure Boot policy has unexpectedly changed".I bought this laptop myself and set it up myself. At no point do I remember bein

  2. Bitlocker recovery key for an external hard drive

    Miguel: My Dell laptop Latitude 5590 has been rendered useless by a command update. After the update the laptop is asking for my bitlocker recovery key but BitLocker isn't on my laptop. Dell says I have to reinstall the hard drive but I am told it will still ask for the bitlocker recovery key. Any ideas?

  3. Bitlocker Randomly Enabled

    Hi,

    On my personal Lenovo laptop, Bitlocker somehow randomly was enabled. I have not enabled it, and I followed the recovery steps without luck. It seems that it was enabled during an update. I logged into my Microsoft account, see that the laptop is listed, but there is no bitlocker key listed. I am at a loss on what the next steps might be for me to be able to log into my computer at this point.

    BitLocker Recovery Key

    Thanks Greg.

    Actually, I can't access to my hard drive because my laptop can't power on and the repair centre changed the PCB to fix the problem. After that, the Window has to be installed again if I can't provide the BitLocker Recovery Key. When I reinstall the Window,
    all my data in hard drive will be disappeared.

    What is your suggestion to recovery my hard drive?

    Regards,
