  1. Reset Windows 10 laptop without recovery key


    An employee was let go at our work. I need to reset their PC but they used Bitlocker. I do not have their recovery key or password to their account. I am trying to fully reset this PC, but Bitlocker will not let me continue. Is there a way to reset this PC and delete their account without the key? Is my only option to fully reinstall Windows10?

    :)

  2. Can anyone give me the reset recovery key for windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    A quick question before we proceed:

    Are you referring to the Recovery key for BitLocker or the key that needed for resetting Windows Phone?



    If you are referring to the Reset Key that is needed for Windows Recovery, then I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps:

    • Go to account.microsoft.com/devices.
    • Next to the phone you no longer own, click I don't own this phone anymore.
    • Select “I’m ready to remove my phone “check box, note the
      recovery key, and then click Remove. The recovery key will display on the page and will also be emailed to you.
    • When you're certain that you have your recovery key saved, select “I’ve kept a copy of the recovery key “ check box, and then click Okay.
    • Forward the recovery key email to your phone recipient.
    Your phone is no longer listed on account.microsoft.com/devices, and you can remove Reset Protection during phone setup using recovery key option.



    If you are referring to reset key for BitLocker, then I suggest you to refer to the following Microsoft article.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

  3. Need recovery key- to Reset Win10 laptop

    Laptop won't start window 10. Tried several times and it hangs with the dots stopping.

    I'm at the Blue screen asking:

    Enter the recovery key-to get going again.

    It has the Recovery Key ID.. can't find the needed Recovery. On the page suggested

    Aka.ms/myrecoverykey

    WHERE IS THE PAGE FOR RECOVERY KEYS?

    windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?
