    VERY strange BitLocker "enter password" startup screen

    Hello there

    So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

    After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

    Click image for larger version

    Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:

    Click image for larger version (at my home PC).

    My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.

    Any thoughts people?

    Kind Regards
