  1. Shutdown laptop and then rebooted and BitLocker Screen appeared asking for a key


    I have a work colleague and she shutdown her laptop as usual and the following down she powered it back on and she was presented with a BitLocker screen asking to enter in a key.


    Unfortunately she doesn't have the key. Is there a way to bypass this?


    Thanks,

    Steve

  2. BitLocker key asking on every reboot

    Hi Jefferson,

    Tnx for the reply. I had tried the same laptop with windows 10 version 1703 and 1709, in which the bitlocker encrypts the HDD perfectly fine with any issue, the problem comes when i reboot. the one with version 1703 reboots without asking for bitlocker
    key and the the one with version 1709 asks top enter the bitlocker key on every reboot.. i tried disabling and enabling the bitlocker by running this command

    <manage-bde.exe -protectors -disable C:>

    <manage-bde.exe -protectors -enable C:>

    I had also ready that in windows 10 version 1709 changes were made in bitlocker features

    Do let me know abt any updates or solutions on this.

    Regards,

    Akram

    Bitlocker Recovery Keys keeps appearing

    Click on the start icon and type bitlocker. Click on the top entry in the list for Manage Bitlocker. In the Window that opens, turn BitLocker off. I noticed that Windows 10 Pro ver 1803, when I installed it on my laptop, encrypted the drive without asking me if I wanted it encrypted or not and I was getting the screen to enter a key after I attempted to install a second boot menu entry.

    HI Akram,
