BitLocker - Turn On or Off for OS Drive in Windows 8

Bitlocker install apparently stalls on reboot

I have read this article which is very detailed and specific. I followed it to a "T". My machine has no TPM. The OS is WIN8.1pro without all the recent updates. I used the registry download. I have prior to this attempt used one supplied by our IT department very similar and manually made the entries. Everything follows exactly as described up until the point of reboot to finish the install. I have repeated the process about 8X now.

Once the laptop comes back up and the password or USB thumb drive key is satisfied, the screen goes rather blank and displays "Preparing automatic Repair". The first time I got this I left it in that state for about 13 hours without change, drive light notification, or visual progress of any type. The only way to get out of it is to power off.

Is this something that is working and needs to continue for a couple of days, or is something else going wrong?

Hello TheTechGuy, and welcome to Eight Forums. :)

I'd say something else it wrong. Do you dual boot with another OS?

If you get past the "Preparing automatic Repair" screen, what happens when you click on the "Restart to Windows" type option?

Thanks for the quick reply. There is only the original WIN8 that was updated to 8.1 then Pro just a week ago. So no dual boot.
Once the laptop starts to boot, I do get a blue box on the screen asking for my password for what seems to primarily be looking to fix the Bitlocker install.
I have never gotten past that black screen "preparing automatic repair". After waiting over 13 hrs. and never noticing a drive light come on or any other progress screen I just gave up and powered off so I could continue using the laptop. When I do power off and finish the reboot I, of course, get the window telling me the C: drive was never encrypted.

Thanks, Brink! Of course, that is not what I wanted to hear, but was afraid would end up that way. The machine has always been well maintained and updated regularly. Possibly something to do with ASUS. I have no other issues that plaque it's performance or normal use. Perhaps that is worth a call to ASUS.
In any case, thanks for the feedback. I may just get a tablet for business use and use a different compliant security.

I'm new to this forum so I apologize if I am not posting in the right section, but I was able to get my BitLocker on, but just curious about the following message, particularly the part where it says "...value displayed on your PC."

Where on my PC do I find this identifier?

BitLocker Drive Encryption recovery key

To verify that this is the correct recovery key, compare the start of the following identifier with the identifier value displayed on your PC.
Identifier:
*********************************************
If the above identifier matches the one displayed by your PC, then use the following key to unlock your drive.
Recovery Key:
*********************************************
If the above identifier doesn't match the one displayed by your PC, then this isn't the right key to unlock your drive.
Try another recovery key, or refer to BitLocker recovery keys: Frequently asked questions - Microsoft Windows Help for additional assistance.



Thanks!!!

More Questions

Ok, again I'm sorry if I am not using the right terminology or explaining anything right. This is what I have done so far.

I was able to encrypt both my Local Disk (C) and Removable Disk (E).
I strongly believe my computer is running TPM because I was able to clear the old password and save the new TPM file on my USB (E).
I believe the USB was successful because every time I plug it into the computer, it asks me for my password.

However, if you look at the attached image, what do I do to add the following options:

Turn On BitLocker
Change Password/PIN

I guess the reason I am asking is because what if someone has gets access to my computer login information but I thought to encrypt my drive so they can't access anything without a password? Is that even how BitLocker works?

Recent Update from ASUS

Sounds like it may be time to reinstall Windows. :(
Brink,
Just a quick update regarding my specific problem for your achieves. What I found out from ASUS tech support adds fuel to the Microsoft fire. Apparently since my laptop came with WIN8.0 and then I updated it shortly thereafter personally with 8.1 and then about a year later updated to Pro, this was the whole issue. According to ASUS, if it didn't get updated thru the store, Microsoft has a glitch in the OS that requires the ESP file to be updated. Apparently, if it was done with ASUS, for example, they are aware of the need and obviously what to do. As a end user doing the upgrade this doesn't change the ESP file and causes the problem. Worse, there is no work-around! So it is either send it to ASUS for several weeks, or try something else. The fix... I am changing the OS to WIN7PRO which will fix the dilemma and wait a few years until Microsoft can get their act together. I hear win8.2 is soon to be released and WIN9 about a year away. I hope this helps with those plaques with Bitlocker problems having the same progressive exercise.

I just installed a Windows 8.1 Enterprise image on my new Toshiba e45-b4200 laptop. I am looking to turn on Bitlocker protection without TPM. Logged in as local "administrator," I performed steps 4 and 6, and proceeded to step 10. The Bitlocker configuration page showed one Operating System volume with 637 GB free. I clicked on the widget to enable Bitlocker to encrypt it. The program did not create a new system partition as per step 10, and brought me to the screen in step 11. I selected the password option. After entering a password, the process failed displaying the message "access is denied."

Please advise.

Thanks,
EdG

Hey Guys,
This is showing up as an active thread to my previous posts, now closed. As I search the member logged into this last post, it has the SAME member number as I do. My issue was resolved a couple of weeks ago and the post to the fix was made but not shown here. The last comment from Brink is above, "How Odd." This is certainly not me. My handle is the TheTechGuy.... what's the deal here?

Access is Denied Message

Disabled Secure Boot and tried again--behavior did not change.

I just joined the company and am waiting for my domain access. I am using my own laptop (welcome to the world of BYOD). I blew away the original Win 8 install, and installed an image that was provided by the client. For now, I am logging into the local machine as "administrator."

Screenshot of Data Management configuration attached.

Thanks,

EdG,

Ah, I see why now. The disk already has the maximum 4 primary partitions on it. The other partitions other than C: are the factory recovery partitions.

This would be why you are getting this error since BitLocker is unable to create a new partition, or use the existing first recovery partition.

It really is a shame how these OEMs setup a disk like that.

Sorry for the delay, but my problem was resolved and I just now have gotten a chance to update the thread.

Once I received my domain credentials, and logged in, a job kicked off automatically and I was prompted to allow Bitlocker to run and encrypt my harddisk which it did. So I assume the domain admins were able to build something into the image that I loaded to prevent manually installing Bitlocker.

Thanks,
EdG

350 MB System Reserve

Although it is mentioned everywhere that the system partition should be at least 350 MB, mine even though being 100 MB, there was no prompt to expand the drive to 350 MB and process straight away skipped to step 12. Was there any change 350 MB min requirement?
