  • Hi,

    I just had the same issue today, so here is what doesn't work with you :

    If you have a motherboard and a BIOS compatible with a TPM, you can uncheck the first option "Allow Bitlocker without a compatible TPM".

    Then, Microsoft has made a mistake with the terms that are being used (in my point of view) : in fact, you have to understand you cannot "require" an option if you "allow" some others...

    So you have 2 choices :

     - either you "allow" each option so you can choose which one when you set Bitlocker on,

     - or you can "require" an option and disable all the others, so you will not be able to make a choice when you set bitlocker on.

    I hope that is clear enough...

  • Hi,

    I just had the same problem with Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit after a restore of OS from an image backup. After the restore i had to enable Bitlocker again.

    What i did was following Tibap's tip with setting each option to "allow" and since that did not help solving it. I had to leave the domain i was a part of and login with a computer account. Then i could successfully enable Bitlocker again and of cource re-join the domain.

  • Just experienced this setting up Windows 10.

    I had both Require TPM and Require TPM & PIN with the other settings Do Not Allow.

    Had to Change Require TPM to Do not allow TPM with just Require startup PIN with TPM.

    THANKS!

  • I am working to resolve an issue with OS Drive(C Drive) encryption for one of Windows 10 New PC, I am getting the follwing error .

    "There are conflicting settings for recovery options.  When a recovery password is required, backup to active directory should be turned on or the user should be required to save the recovery password."

    Any ideas?

  • Yes, you are correct and this solved my issue! Even if I'm not using TPM and I put a check in the first box, "Allow Bitlocker without a compatible TPM", I still had to go and allow all other options to startup with PIN.
