    I am wiping a few laptops for work and all have bit locker so the standard "reset this PC" option does not work. I have installed the windows media tool on a USB and am planning to do a hard reset via the bios. My concern though, is will this fresh installation from the USB remove the necessary pre installed software on HP for the laptop to function or function properly. Can it be reinstalled easily?

    :)

  2. Bitlocker Recovery Key

    No, no other accounts.

    What puzzles me is why the Bitlocker recovery key is not listed on the microsoft account, but there is a recovery key listed there for a computer I do not recognise.

    I have several laptops but only the HP Envy has had Bitlocker on it. So what key is this on my account? And why isn't the Envy key there?

  3. Bitlocker Recovery Key

    Hi,

    My HP Envy underwent some updates when I shut it down last night. These completed normally.

    This morning when I turned it on it is asking for a Bitlocker Recovery key. I was not aware that this laptop even had bitlocker activiated, but clearly it has.

    I do not know what the recovery key is, I have not copied it to a USB stick or written it on a piece of paper. Why would I? I didn't even know bitlocker was activated.

    I visited my microsoft account and found that the HP is listed in the 'Devices' section with the correct identifier and there is a link to 'Bitlocker details'. However, when I click this the bitlocker key and key identifier listed there do not match the key identifier that the laptop is asking for. And entering this key just gets me "this is incorrect".

    How come the wrong key is listed there?

    How can I get the correct key?

    Is there anyway to get round this without losing all my data?
