    How to disable Bitlocker Recovery Key completely?


    Hi. So we got a bunch of laptops that have Bitlocker enabled by default (i guess). At least when you go into Windows, then under Bitlocker settings it offers to disable (decrypt) the drive.



    One of our laptops had a warranty recall, and after motherboard swap it asked for Recovery Key which i have no idea where to look for. We don't have MS accounts associated with these laptops, and no domain. Just local admin users. I tried to look for every possible way to recover the key, to no avail. So lost one very important file that was not backed up unfortunately.



    So to keep this from happening in the future after warranty, how can i make sure our new laptops won't ask for the Recovery Key? I understand when you try to disable TPM in BIOS, it will again ask for it. Because i have no idea where it is storing this key, was it supposed to be somewhere in the papers? We don't have the boxes anymore.



    We won't need drive encryption.

    BitLocker Recovery key not correct

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues with BitLocker recovery key on your PC. I will certainly try my best to assist you with the issue.



    Let’s try disabling secure boot on the PC. Follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    1. Power the device off and then back on.
    2. Look for a message on the boot screen just before or after the manufacturer logo appears. You may need to press the F1, F2, or Delete button, whatever key is indicated on the boot screen to enter BIOS Settings.
    3. Inside BIOS, look for a tab called BOOT and select that page. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, this page could be BOOT, ADVANCED, STARTUP, etc.
    4. Look for a setting for UEFI Secure Boot. Each BIOS could have a different name for this. These are the keywords to look for: UEFI, Secure Boot, Legacy Boot.
    5. Toggle the Secure Boot setting to disabled and attempt to boot the machine.


    In addition, you can try disabling BitLocker using the manage bde commands and see if that helps. Try booting the PC in WinRE mode and then refer the article

    Disable-BitLocker




    Kindly follow the steps to boot to WinRE mode.



    1. Reboot the PC using Power button and once you see the manufacturer logo press the power button again.
    2. Repeat step 1 at least 2-3 times until you see the System Recovery Options screen
    3. On the System Recovery Options screen, select
      Troubleshoot
      > Advanced options > Command Prompt.


    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to post your query on TechNet
    forums
