  2. 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.

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

    Thank you.

  3. Locked out of computer because of BitLocker Recovery Issue, but I NEVER ENABLED BitLocker!

    Hi Raynee,

    For us to properly assist you, we would like to ask for more details about the issue. Please help us verify the following:

    • What's the make and model of your computer?
    • Can you recall if at some point you have enabled Bitlocker?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.
     
  4. Getting issues with enabling Bitlocker.

    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.
