Bitlocker help

Q: Bitlocker help

I have a computer with two hard drives in it. One has only one partition with Windows Vista installed. The other one is split into two partitions; one with Windows 7 installed and the other as a storage device for my stuff like music and documents.
I encrypted that partition with the files using Bitlocker on Windows 7 but now I can't unlock it using the Vista install; it says I need to format it before I can use it.
Is it possible to unlock the drive while on Vista?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Bitlocker help

ok I got the answer from here
http://thepcsecurity.com/open-bitloc...and-xp-how-to/

basicly all you have to do is download the bitlocker reader for vista (and xp)

Am super frustrated and would appreciate any help.   ThinkPad X1 6th Gen has been dead more than a week;  OS crashed, but several reboot and repair efforts failed.  Tried system restore.  That required a bitlocker key (which I found online) but then the machine would not accept my account password.  So unable to restore.    Multiple calls with Thinkpad warranty support (hardware and software) could provide no help or guidance.  (Except to send restoration media.)  Mind-boggling lack of support... and no way to escalate issue to someone who actually understood it.  Deeply disappointing experience w/ Lenovo. . So now the question is how -- after I reset my system -- do I avoid this nonsense in the future?   I shouldn't have to rebuild my laptop from scratch anytime there is an OS problem.  BTW, I did not order bitlocker, set up bitlocker or create any password for it.  Do not need it or want it.    Can anyone help with advice on how to set up my machine without it? Thanks.

Hi
After rebooting one of our test machines, bitlocker wanted the recovery key.
There were no hardware modifications on that machine.
Error message in event log:
Bootmgr failed to obtain the bitlocker volume master key from the TPM because the PCRs did not match
Event id 24635, source bitlocker-driver
 Each time the machine starts, the recovery key is needed.
Any idea how to solve that issue and why it happens?
update:
Second partition was created manually on that machine. So that's clear that bitlocker reacts...
But now: how can I confirm those changes so that the recovery key is not needed each time we boot?

A:Bitlocker enabled drive, recovery key needed during boot, PCS did not match, event id 24635, source bitlocker-driver

Hi,
 
I would like to confirm if BitLocker accepts the recovery key?
 
Please update the BIOS to improve the stability for TPM first.
 
I also would like to suggest you disable and enable BitLocker again to reset the settings.

Hello and good afternoon, I have a issue where a manager started the Bitlocker process on the SD card in his Surface Pro 3

with Windows 8.1. The Bitlocker attempt failed at 3.4% completed but the SD card ended up being Bitlocked without providing the Bitlocker Recovery Key (I've never seen this happen before). He doesn't know the password for the SD card and of course
I've been tasked to somehow release the encryption so that he can get the required information off of the SD card. 



Is there anything that can be done to release the encryption on the SD card or has the SD card been made non-accessible moving forward?

I am trying to enable BitLocker on a Windows 7 Ultimate x32 system with TPM. I follow the Wizard and when asked to encrypt the drive I select 'Run BitLocker system check' and 'Continue' (see attached sreenshot).
The USB is inserted and contains the recovery key (.txt and .tpm). During reboot I get:

Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption Information
The system boot information has changed since BitLocker was enabled.
You must supply a BitLocker recovery password to start this system.
Confirm that the boot changes to this system are authorized.
If the changes to the boot system are trusted, then disable and re-enable
BitLocker. This will reset BitLocker to use the new boot information.

Otherwise, restore the system boot information.

ENTER=Continue

Windows then continues to start normally. After login I get an error message: BitLocker could not be enabled (see attached screenshot).
When I check TMP it shows as active, initialized and owned.

I've started out from scratch several times - same results. I can't figure out what the problem is.
This is driving me nuts.

Dell was absolutely zero help in finding the TPM and activating it, but swears I should have it. How do I find out for sure, and turn it on so I can use Bitlocker?

A:Bitlocker with TPM

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip, it stores the cryptographic keys needed to encrypt and decrypt your hard disk or partition . This isn't *required* to use bit locker. The TPM chip is a hardware storage of the encryption key, So only that computer can access the encrypted DATA. You can sill encrypt the disk using the software, it will save the key in windows and not lock it to specific hardware, so you could hook up the HDD to another computer enter the key and get the DATA off. What model Dell XPS did you purchase, perhaps I can help find out if it does actually have the TPM chip.

Got one of my drives locked by bitlocker (don't ask me how, I updated to win 10, got problems and reverted back to win 8.1, and then it was locked without me ever activating it). The only option I got in my bitlock manager is to unlock drive, but when clicking

Anyway, found a recovery key on onenote and tried to unlock from command prompt in admin mode with "manage-bde -unlock D: -RecoveryKey <myverylongkey>", and got the result "ERROR: An error occurred while attempting to read the key from

Where I work, we have 4 Lenovo X100e Mini laptops and we installed our copy of Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. To my knowledge there has to be a TPM to use BitLocker with certain versions of Windows 7 in order for the key to be stored in Active Directory, like the rest of our regular laptops are.
My question is, can I enable and use Bitlocker in any way and still have the key stored in AD without a TPM? The laptops did not come with a TPM so is there an add-on?(I know it is a long shot for this question)
Also, what other good encryption software is out there that does not require a USB Flash Drive or security password to gain access to the hard drive?

Hi
I am considering using BitLocker and have a few questions:-

- when I create a backup image of my hard drive, will that be an image of the locked files i.e. will it also be safe or do I need to turn BitLocker on for that drive too?
- I have quite a large file size (175Gb on the hard drive), will that BitLocker take ages to run and will it slow down the computer once enabled?
- presumably BitLocker just requires me to enter a password each time I use the computer to access the locked files?

Many thanks.

A:BitLocker

Any backups you make of a Bitlocker-encrypted drive will not be encrypted. This includes using the Windows system image method or any third-party backup utility.

If you move data from a Bitlocker-encrypted drive it will lose its encryption.

When you reboot after setting up Bitlocker, the system drive will begin a lengthy encryption process, which will increase in time for larger drive volumes.

Bitlocker encrypts every single bit on a drive, so today's large hard drives will take a long time to complete the process.

As far as I'm aware, your system will take a performance hit after encryption so you need to weigh up which is more important to you: performance or security.

When you create your encrypted volume, you will be prompted to create a recovery key password, which you will need to access the drive.

If you intend encrypting more than one drive, make sure you encrypt your system volume first. When you restart your computer after you have done this, you will then be able to encrypt other volumes on your hard drive(s).

Hello Snoopy187,

Welcome to the forums.

right first off, you shouldn't really use bit locker on an external drive as it can cause issues.

Now, have you tried moving these files to the desktop and play them from there.

Lastly, the recovery passwords are for when your designated chip (Can't remember what its called off hand) or USB stick fails/lost. There would be an option, whilst your booting up where it will ask for the code if the chip/usb stick is not present.

REMEMBER - DO NOT LOSE THEM OR YOU ARE UP S*** CREEK!!!

Post back if the files still work or not whilst on the main drive windows drive

I'm in the process of fixing crap that Acronis TrueImage broke while uninstalling. Apparently their developers forgot to make their application revert changes after the uninstall finishes.

Anyway, I'm having a weird issue. Took 2-3 hours last night to get Backup & Restore working being that Acronis broke that as well. Now that I have it working, I'm having another issue. I can't click on "Turn on" BitLocker. Trust me, my desktop is more than able to handle BitLocker. I've seen the option to turn it on awhile ago and now I don't. I'm confused.



Please, if anyone can help me. I'm sick of this software's damages. Almost causes for a complete wipe & reload.

Hello, i have just finished building a TaskSequence in SCCM 2012 for de HP Elite X2 1012 G1 notebook.All is working except Bitlocker.All other laptops (HP 650 G1, G2 and Elite X2 1011 G1, etc) bitlocker does work.I receive an error with Active Directory not being setup correcty. Access Denied.This is normally due to de SELF object not able to write the TPM ownerinformation. But our AD has been setup for this a long time ago. And all other laptops etc bitlocker works fine.When i check the bios. all other laptops have an option for OS managament of bitlocker.The new HP Elite X2 1012 G1 however does not.How can i enable bitlocker and write the key to the Active Directory for this laptop?

A:bitlocker

It looks like that setting can be found on page 20 of the manual under the Secourity -> TPM Embedded Security -> TPM State menu. Here's the link to the manual with detailed settings for the BIOS: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04947557
