Getting Error "The boot configuration Data (BCD) settings for the following boot application have changed since Bitlocker was enabled" RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are getting the above error randomly on some of the laptops we have deployed. The error comes right after you boot or when the windows 7 is left running. There are no special software running. The error in details is below.

    "The boot configuration Data (BCD) settings for the following boot application have changed since Bitlocker was enabled
    boot appplication: \windows\system32\winload.exe
    change settings: 0x26000090

    You must supply a bitlocker recovery key to start this system.

    Confirm that the changes to the BCD settings are trusted.

    If the changes are trusted then suspend and resume bitlocker. This will reset bitlocker to use the new BCD settings.

    Otherwise restore the original BCD settings"

     

    Can anyone please explain on how to correct this error. As before this is happening on few of the machines and we are seeing more as we go. Any tips would be nice...Thanks

  • Hi,

    We did try the above solution but that did not work. We are still getting the same error message. We re using a Dell latitude E6420 and it does not have an option "Follow Boot Order"

    Did you executed an application that wanted to restart windows in safe mode or using a different bootprofile than was originally programmed? There could have been made an alteration in your windows profile boot file, in that case, you cannot restore without using a key to accept and trust the alteration.

    When using applications that perform such raw and low-level actions, keep in mind to suspend bitlocker before allowing such application to perform their action.

  • The answers lies within the message.

    "If the changes are trusted then suspend and resume bitlocker. This will reset bitlocker to use the new BCD settings."

    This is what i did

    1. Open command prompt as an administrator

    2. execute following command

    c:\> manage-bde.exe -protectors -disable [drive name]

    c:\> manage-bde.exe -protectors -enable [drive name]

    3. Reboot the system.

    Once system is rebooted it will accept your PIN which you have set.
