Transfer hard disk with Bitlocker encrypted? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I got a machine with MBAM client installed and encrypted with Bitlocker and everything works fine. But that machine's mother board failed so we got it replace with an exact model. The replacement is not here yet, so i'm curious whether if i can plug the original hard disk onto the new machine and re enable TPM without the need to re encrypt the whole drive?

    The above page says that i can disable bitlocker first and re enable it for any hardware/software upgrades but im not sure if this applies in my situation, which assuming i would need to key in the recovery key first, boot into the original drive and disable and reenable it.

    Your advise is much appreciated.
