  1. PC suddenly request to unlock bitlocker after update


    Hi,


    We have 6-month-old Lenovo 14s Think book. After the update was installed and restarted the laptop, it requested a Bitlocker Key which was not setup initially on the laptop.


    The laptop was initially set up via offline mode, so no Microsoft account was used whatsoever.


    How to bypass Bitlocker?

    :)

    Hi Havard,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing currently.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to try unlocking the drive using the Bitlocker facility available in Windows 10 and check if you are able to unlock it successfully. If you are getting any error message with says “Application not found”, then I would suggest you

    PC suddenly request to unlock bitlocker after update

    HELP: Automatic BitLocker Unlock.

    Please help,
    Looking for a way( script or maybe some unknown windows command or registry hack) to automatically unlock a non OS BitLocker encrypted drive on Log-In.

    My situation: Right now my OS SSD Samsung 840 Evo has a boot password, its not Bios option nor windows eDrive but the third one, the one you need 3rd party software to activate it, had to purchase EMBASSY Security Center to do it.
    No issues here, the OS drive is locked and encrypted.

    One of My HDD Drives is encrypted with Bitlocker, so every time my PC is booted, I need to enter windows log-in password and then open my computer and enter another password to unlock the drive.
    Whats worse is that unlike the SSD that needs unlock password only after full shutdown the Bitlocker needs it every log-in.

    Windows has an option to Automaticlly unlock all BitLocker drives on boot, BUT the issue here is that this official option only works if your OS drive is also BitLocker encrypted and then log-in password unlocks everything.

    Im looking for maybe a windows Script or some Hidden command to automatically unlock the BitLocker drive.

    Even if it Sounds insecure like having the actual password somewhere in the registry, text file or script I dont care because the OS drive is encrypted and passworded.
    Also I have a TPM chip I can encrypt any file/folder so even if file is copied from my PC when its fully unlocked the files wont be readable anywhere unless unencrypted before.

    If its important im on 8.1 pro 64bit

    P.S. If there is no solution for my problem then my only choice is when windows 10 comes out to do a clean install on another Samsung 840 Evo that was previously cleared and eDrive option enabled


    Thanks in advance.
