BitLocker - always invalid password

    BitLocker - always invalid password


    Hello,
    I use Win8 PRO and BitLocker to encrypt my system drive.
    My notebook hasn't TPM module, so I changed group rules and allow to use BitLocker without TPM.
    I enabled BitLocker, write key backup to flash drive and use PIN to unlock BitLocker.

    Everything works fine except one think... when I start computer, there is BitLocker start screen and I must write PIN.
    Always, really ALWAYS first-time password is invalid. Tried to write it very, very slow and I'm sure its correct... but BitLocker said it isn't.
    I must delete it and write again... click enter and... pass is valid!
    I try to use insert to show password - in this case, first-time password are correct and Bitlocker accepts its.
    Unfortunatelly, it isn't secure method.

    Strange problem, but what can I do?

    That would indicate the first time you type it, it is in fact wrong. Try typing it and then after you've typed it, hit insert and see if it's correct.
