    Hi Brink,

    That is what i am worried about most. Basically Drive is not password protected. its just encrypted and having issue with decryption. I also have recover key separately copied. so is there any chances now ?

    It'll just depend on if it will be able to successfully finish decrypting.

    I enabled bitlocker for boot volume and after "test" restart got blank screen. Some commands:

    Hello Malcolm, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    That doesn't sound good at all. You might try restarting the computer again to see if you may get a BitLocker failed message, and then return to Windows.

    Otherwise, it's looking like it may be time to clean install.
