    Touchscreen not working - tablet is locked by BitLocker and I have no password to unlock it.


    I have a Toshiba Encore 2 tablet. Somehow the BitLocker got activated on the C drive and I do not know where the recovery key is. I must have inadvertently activated it unknowingly. I did find the recovery key ID, but it is useless, as far as I can tell. I downloaded the Windows 10 installation media from Microsoft website onto a USB. My tablet has only one micro USB port but I have an adapter. I tried loading the USB - sometimes it will go through as far as the first screen asking for Language choice etc. The touch doesn't work but I was able to hook up a keyboard via another USB on a splitter adapter. This allowed me to tab through the choices and enter NEXT. The next screen asks for ACCEPT TERMS and here I am stuck - the touch and the keyboard do not respond. I cannot access the settings on this tablet because the OS (C drive) is locked. Is there a way to get the touchscreen and or keyboard functioning long enough to get this WINDOWS 10 re-installed to kill the BitLocker?

    :)

    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.

    • Click Unlock drive.
    • Type your present password and click Unlock.
    • The drive will be unlocked and you will notice more links on the right of that particular unlocked drive, click
      Change password.

  4. Touchscreen not working - tablet is locked by BitLocker and I have no password to unlock it.

    How to disable bitlocker auto unlock when my windows account password was changed?

    How to prevent auto unlocking drives from my laptop when my windows password changed? Hack or change my account password to much more easy than decrypt disk, but why windows doesn't provide such functionality from the box? I looking for any scripts to auto unlock from powershell also.

    I'm not going to "just disable unblock". It's very useful thing. I have too many things which starts from encrypted volume. I want to prevent access to my volume only just getting my account. If my system administrator account could be hacked, all sensitive data would be lost.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Login into your account
    2. Set up bitlocker, auto-unlock
    3. Restart PC and login into account
    4. Drive unlocked
    5. Logout from account (I switched off whole PC)
    6. Ask sysadmin to change your password to new one
    7. Login into your account with new password

    Expected result: bitlocker drive locked

    Actual result: drive unlocked
