Once Mcafee is removed and Bitlocker is installed and encrypted the device is then locked out following the first restart of the device, any other restart after this instance has no issuesIs there anything we can check before encrypting with Bitlocker which would prevent this issue upon re

    Need to turn off Bitlocker to install Windows 10

    Hi,

    We suggest doing the following steps again to resolve the issue. To complete the procedure, make sure that you have the following information:

    • You must be able to provide administrative credentials.
    • The drive must be BitLocker-protected.
    To suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption on an operating system drive, please follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel, click
      System and Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Suspend Protection for the operating system drive.
    • A message is displayed, informing you that your data will not be protected while BitLocker is suspended and asking if you want to suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Yes to continue and suspend BitLocker on the drive.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Issues with Bitlocker following first restart after encryption

    USBs encrypted with BitLocker To Go causes Windows 10 machines to hang following Windows Defender update to 4.18.1812.3-0

    Hi Scott,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.



    This issue could be because of the drive letter being assigned automatically when the encrypted USB drive is plugged in.



    You may want to try the steps listed below and see if it works for you.

    • Plug in a flash drive without any encryption, format it completely.
    • Right click the Windows icon on the taskbar and choose
      Disk Management
      .
    • In the Disk Management console, right click the volume with the USB drive letter and select
      Change Drive Letter and Paths.
    • Click on Change, choose E, and click
      OK.
    • Restart the machine, plug in the encrypted USB drive
      and see if the issue persists.


    If the issue persists, as the query is related to the BitLocker To Go configuration, I suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet Forums,
    where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on BitLocker to assist you with this.



    Regards,
