  1. PC prompting to enter Bit-Locker key while booting


    Hi there, I have been locked out of my hard drive by Bitlocker. 1st I did not activate this, 2nd MS in my account shows its activated, ie with out my authorisation. I have spent 5days researching this common issue which has my business 10s of 1000s of $. Given that MS generated this during its "own" updates, I would like to have MY code for Bitlcoker to continue to run my business please. Im not looking to blame, I just need resolution fast.

  2. Having to enter bit locker key everyday

    Hi,

    I realize that you are getting the bit locker prompt very often. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to turn off the Bit Locker, restart the pc and then turn on the Bit Locker to check if that helps.

    To enable BitLocker, open the Control Panel and navigate to System and Security > BitLocker Drive Encryption. You can also open Windows Explorer or File Explorer, right-click a drive, and select Turn On BitLocker.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Recover Bit Locker key to login through BIOS

    Hi
    AbhishekEllangi
    ,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We can imagine how difficult it could be. However, we would need some more information regarding the issue.

    1. Are you not able login to your computer due to BitLocker Recovery Key?
    2. Did you ever setup BitLocker Recovery Key on your computer?
    3. Are you using Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Professional?

    I would suggest you to follow these methods and check if that helps.



    Method 1: Find the Bit locker key.

    I would suggest you to search for the Bit locker key, please refer the Microsoft article on
    Find my BitLocker recovery key.Once
    you have found the key, try to login and check.



    Method 2: Enable Secure Boot.

    It might be that the Secure Boot has been disabled and some BIOS updates have caused this to happen, so follow the below steps and toggle the UEFI Secure Boot in BIOS.



    NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft
    cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.



      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.
        1. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer this page could be BOOT, ADVANCED, STARTUP, etc.
      4. Look for a setting for UEFI Secure Boot.
        1. 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 enable and attempt to boot the machine.


    Regards,
