  • boot with a Windows 10 media and try to decrypt. Maybe Windows 8 can not read the newer version of Bitlocker encryption.
    When this does not work: what is the error message you get?

  • Hi,

     

    I agree with EckiS.

     

    You could reinstall Windows 10 via  a W10 installation USB to see if it works.

     

    Or try to restore Windows may be helpful, the steps are shown below.

     

    Step 1: Boot computer via the installation disc.

    Step 2: Select your language preferences, and click Next.

    Step 3: Click Repair your computer > Troubleshoot > Advanced options > System Restore.

     

    Hope above information can help you.
