  1. Enabled Encryption on Windows 10 Pro (HP machine) now it will not boot


    I just enabled Device Encryption and my laptop had to reboot. Now it will not allow me to log in. It keeps asking for the Recovery Key, which I keep entering, then it give me a message "STOP CODE" screen with a frowning face and says it has to restarts. After it restarts I am prompted to re-enter the Recovery Key, when I do I get a message "Failed to boot with this Recovery Key". I have the printed recovery key and identifier and I know the entries are correct but I cannot get into my laptop. This is critical as I am self employed and need my laptop to be encrypted. Please help!

    :)

  2. Not Able to Enable Hardware Based Bitlocker Encryption On Surface Pro 4 (Windows 10 Pro)

    Ok, I have a feeling that this is a larger Windows 10 issue, but I am experiencing this with the Surface Pro 4, the ideal test hardware for anything Microsoft, right? Enabled Encryption on Windows 10 Pro (HP machine) now it will not boot :)

    Here is what we are trying to accomplish:

    Encrypt our Surface Pro 4's (win 10 Pro) using Hardware-Based Encryption

    Why?

    A) Because it is faster for the SSD to perform the encryption rather than the process, since the SSD is already encrypted

    B) Better battery life (because the processor is not encrypting the volume)

    C) Performing software encryption on an already encrypted volume defeats many of the internal optimizations that SSDs have built in (leading to slower performance)

    How?

    We have taken stock Surface Pro 4s, straight from the box. No applications or updates have been installed, we have not added to a domain. The only modification we have made is to the Local Group Policy:

    Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Bitlocker Drive Encryption/Operating System Drives

    *Require additional authentication at startup (Enabled, default options)

    *Enable use of BitLocker Aauthentication requireing preboot keyboard input on slates (Enabled, default options)

    *Configure use of hardware-based encryption for operating system drives (Enabled, default options)

    What's Wrong:

    When I go to enable Bitlocker, I am being provided the prompt to encrypt Used Only, or Whole Drive. From all of the literature I have read, this prompt indicates Software Encryption. When I select Full Drive, it takes a while (over 10 minutes) to encrypt.
    Again, from my reading, Hardware

    Encryption should be immediate (as everything is already encrypted).

    Question:

    What am I missing? Is there an issue with Hardware Encryption that I have not been able to identify on the Surface Pro 4? Is this an OS issue? Are there any other troubleshooting steps that I can take a look at? Again, these are stock units, fresh out of
    the box from Microsoft.

  3. Boot errors on BitLocker enabled machine

    Our company runs Windows 10 machines in a domain environment, and we have had a couple of machines that had boot errors, and would not start up. BitLocker would not allow startup repair from the Windows Installation disc to fix any boot errors, or to select
    a Recovery Point. We ended up having to re-image the machines in order to get them going again. Is there a better way to fix boot errors on a Windows 10 machine that is encrypted with BitLocker?
