  2. CORRECT BITLOCKER RECOVERY KEY AND FACTORY RESET FAILING TO WORK

    Hi Ronald,

    The system might be rejecting the incorrect BitLocker recovery key. Check this
    article for tips to find your BitLocker recovery key. If you want to reset your Surface device, I would
    suggest trying the refresh option first. Refreshing your Surface reinstalls Windows and keeps your personal files, settings, apps that came installed on your Surface, and apps that you installed from Microsoft Store. Here are the steps:

    1. Follow the instructions on this link to download a recovery image for your Surface device.
    2. Shut down your Surface and plug it in so you don’t run out of power during the refresh.
    3. Insert the USB recovery drive into the USB port.
    4. Press and hold the volume-down button while you press and release the power button. When the Surface logo appears, release the volume-down button.
    5. When prompted, select the language and keyboard layout you want.
    6. Select Troubleshoot > Refresh your PC, and select the operating system you want to refresh.
    7. On the Refresh your PC screen, select Next >
      Refresh.
    8. Surface restarts and the Surface logo appears during the refresh process (this can take several minutes).

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  4. correct bitlocker recovery key and factory reset failing to work

    Entering correct BitLocker recovery key results in 'Failed to unlock with this recovery key'

    My recovery codes are stored with Microsoft, and I got my other four installed drives recovered perfectly the first time through, but my operating system drive (Ccorrect bitlocker recovery key and factory reset failing to work :) is not able to recognize the correct recovery key.

    I can see the code, enter the code, but sadly receive 'Failed to unlock with this recovery key'. Again, I had four successes with other drives - it's just this one - and happens to be my C:, which stops everything else and won't let Windows run, nor even
    repair/restore itself in Bitlocker (Factory Reset fails with error code 0x80070057).

    Anyone else run into this?
