  • Hi,

     

    Since you have the password, I suggest using it to boot into system and performing a System Restore. If you use Bitlocker, you need to suspend it and then load updates or make changes.

  • Hi there,

    What is the detail required information that you see when the your computer starts up?

    Did you enable BitLocker Drive Encryption on the problematic HDD?
