How to disable Bitlocker before Windows starts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it posible to disable Bitlocker before the Windows starts? I am the owner of the computer and have the recovery key. The prblem is the Windows doesen't start because there is something wrong with the hard drive (Windows logo apears, the the blue screen apears for 1s and restarts). Now I can start Windows xp mini from CD but cant see the hard drive because of the BitLocker. So I would like to disable it so I can save as much data as I can.

  • Rather starting from Windows xp mini, if you can remove the hard and plug it to a working system containing windows 7 or higher will prompt you for password or even you will be able to decrypt since you are having the recovery key..
