  • I'm not sure you can, bitlocker ties your installation to the hardware.

    "To P2V a BitLocker drive, please suspend the protection"

  • Does bitlocker ask you for a recovery key during the boot process?

  • the hardware has changed, he won't be able to boot in my opinion, that's the whole point of bitlocker
