bypass bitlocker

Go to solution Solved by Pixelfie,

I managed to fix it by enabling secure boot. Not sure how that helped but whatever.

If you have signed in to a Microsoft account when your set up your computer, there is a bitlocker recovery page from Microsoft to get the key you need. 

If you did not and you don't have the key somewhere, you will need to wipe the drive and do a clean install. 

Don't have the key, but I will try to get one

You can put it in your desktop but it should ask you for the recovery key there as well. If you don't have it all you can do is wipe it. 

Good to now for next time it happens, thanks 🙂

So my laptop froze and I force rebooted it, but now it's asking for a bitlocker key which I don't think I have. Is there anyway to bypass without deleting the data? I can add the SSD to my desktop if needed. Losing the data isn't bad as I have everything on Onedrive but it's still a lot of trouble to reinstall everything

Quote or tag me so I get notified 🙂 Also mark my post as answer if it answered your question!

If you change boot settings and have a TPM that will trigger bitlocker, so most likely your BIOS reset itself somehow and that changed the boot config, good that you could put them back.

You can get the recovery key by right clicking on the drive and going to "manage bitlocker".
