  1. Quick question about fresh install and bitlocker


    Hi everyone;

    I just did a fresh install to fix some bluetooth issues I was having. I did a completely fresh install that did not keep any of my old files or settings.

    Windows installed successfully, and I did log in to my microsoft account as I had planned.

    After the install and logging into my account etc, Bitlocker was already enabled and required the PIN upon boot. This setting and the PIN was the same as from before the fresh install.

    Is this all tied to my microsoft account? Is this why it remembered everything and why I didn't need to reconfigure BitLocker?

    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.
