Bitlocker not active, but drive locked by bitlocker RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, no need for a long story. Short description;

    - Never used bitlocker on this W10 machine
    - Installed latest Windows updates
    - Rebooted
    - Got BsoD
    - Repair failed got orange striped screen
    - Used a windows USB to try and tried to reset the drive and got the message: The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again.
    - Used cmd using windows usb, did Manage-bde -status and it says;

    Conversion status;         Fully decrypted
    Percentage encryption;   0.0%
    Encryption method;        None
    Protection status;           Protection Off
    Lock status;                   Unlocked
    Identification field;          None
    Automatic unlock;          Disabled 

    So short story shorter, Drive is NOT locked by bitlocker, but Windows cannot boot and says the drive is locked... Now what?!

    So, no

    need for a long story, I'll just stick to a short description;
