    Remote wipe from Intune on a computer with Bitlocker enabled


    In a couple of months, our firm is joining a few laptops to Azure AD Directory.

    Because of the project standard, these machines would need to be enabled with Bitlocker.

    I've tested the Remote wipe option from the Endpoint Manager admin console to

    a test laptop device with Bitlocker enabled. The laptop reboots, then stops at the

    screen needing a recovery key to proceed. In event if the laptop is stolen or lost,

    I need to be able to remote wipe the computer. How can I achieve this?

    :)

  2. BitLocker won't enable on Windows 10 after update on Aug 9

    Hi Brenda,

    I would be happy to assist you.

    Before I assist you I would like to know the information below,


    • Do you have a Windows 10 copy of the operating system?

    I suggest you check whether the Bit locker is ON or OFF using the steps below.

    Can you verify if BitLocker is enabled or disabled on your device? You can Enable/disable BitLocker by going to Desktop and follow these steps:


    • Swipe Right to Left to bring up the Charm.

    • Choose Settings.

    • Choose Control Panel.

    • Select BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    • Verify whether BitLocker is on or off on each device.
    Also I suggest you to enable the WinRE so that you can enter the bit locker key and proceed.

    When WinRE is disabled, you cannot enable BitLocker, and you receive an error message that resembles the following.

    This PC doesn't support entering a BitLocker recovery password during startup. Ask your administrator to configure Windows Recovery Environment so that you can use BitLocker.

    The solution would be to manually enable the windows recovery environment:


    • Copying the winre.wim file from c:\windows\system32\recovery\ to a folder on a recovery partition. (The partition need to have a drive letter at this point.)

    • Set the RE Image path. Example: reagentc /setreimage /path r:\recovery\windowsre

    • Enable RE with command: reagentc /enable

    • (You may remove the drive letter for the recovery partition after you have done this.)

    • Bit locker will be enabled.
    If the issue still persists, suggest you to post your query on the below link.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Thank you.
