October 2016 Patches Causing Bitlocker Issues RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • There are few reports of users having Bitlocker issues following the October 2016 patches. The issue is that on every reboot, the Bitlocker recovery key is required which is quite disruptive and cumbersome. As a workaround in order to solve this issue, the following steps can be taken:

    On the next reboot and once in Windows, reset Bitlocker by disabling and re-enabling it.

    In admin command prompt:
    manage-bde -protectors c:-disable
    then do the following
    manage-bde -protectors c:-enable

    At this time, I'm not certain on which patch is causing the issue but I wanted to share this info to help.
