Bitlocker Error During Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I recently discovered that my motherboard has an integrated TPM and wanted to enable Bitlocker for drive encryption.  However, upon install I am greeted with an error stating that "The path specified in the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) for a BitLocker Dive Encryption integrity-protected application is incorrect.  Please verify and correct your BCD settings and try again."

    I posted this same question in the Microsoft Community forums to no avail. (For reference, here is the original post)

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-security/bitlocker-error-during-install/5875e74d-28f8-486d-839b-d69f94ddd486?messageId=81b66541-80e0-40eb-ac6d-b36730df1878

    I've followed multiple alleged solutions to this issue, none of which have worked.

    If anyone can help me with this I would be greatly appreciative!

  • I followed these steps and it fixed it for me today.

    First I opened an elevated command prompt and ran bcdedit -enum all.  I could see under the bootmgr and memdiag areas that the device was unknown. 

    You will need to locate the System Volume number on the PC and point the system to it.

    Open Command Prompt as Administrator

    Type diskpart
    Type Select Disk 0
    type list volume

    A list will appear, note what volume is the System (FAT32) Partition

    In my example it was Volume 2 that was labeled System

    Exit diskpart

    Run Command Prompt as Administrator

    Type the following (Note the volume number changes depending on the outcome of the diskpart command)

    bcdedit -set {bootmgr} device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2
    bcdedit -set {memdiag} device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2

    Close command prompt and run Bitlocker setup again.  I did not need to reboot.

  • This solution worked however I received another error in turn stating that the "volume does not contain a recognized file system"

    I've run SFC and chkdsk, both state there are no errors.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    If you receive "The volume does not contain a recognized file system" error, please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.
