How do I boot to windows or disable bitlocker?


Anonymous,
Steps to Turn On/Off BitLocker:
Click the Start button to view the Start Menu and then choose the Control Panel option.

The Control Panel window opens up.
Now click the System and Security link from this window.
The System and Security section of Control Panel opens up and you can see the direct link for the BitLocker Drive Encryption.
Click on the BitLocker Drive Encryption and a new window opens up.
By default the BitLocker Drive Encryption is Off for the Hard Disk Drive. Click Turn On BitLocker. If a compatible Trusted Platform Module.
Note: To use BitLocker Drive Encryption, your computer has to meet certain hardware requirements.
Otherwise, this opens the BitLocker setup wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click Turn Off BitLocker. This opens the BitLocker Drive Encryption dialog box. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Thank You,

Try This:

Before you start
  • You must be logged on as an administrator.

  • The volume must be encrypted.

To turn off BitLocker Drive Encryption
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
  2. From the BitLocker Drive Encryption page, find the volume on which you want BitLocker Drive Encryption turned off, and click Turn Off BitLocker Drive Encryption.
  3. From the What level of decryption do you want dialog box, click either Disable BitLocker Drive Encryption or Decrypt the volume as needed.
    By completing this procedure, you have either disabled BitLocker or decrypted the operating system volume.



    Good Luck!!

Looks like you have a harddrive problem.

It may be temporary, or the HDD may have failed completely; the latter may be for multiple reasons: impact, overheating, induced electromagnetic field (like a cellphone put in immediate vicinity of the drive), or just bad luck.

With such problems it's always a tough choice:
- try various methods of recovering the drive, reinstalling the system and so on, risking that the drive contents will be even harder to recover by a professional data recovery company
- or leave it as it is and seek professional help.

If you don't have anything so important on the HDD that would justify the big $$$ needed for data recovery, you can try various system recovery tools, and if they fail, just replace the harddrive with a new one and reinstall operating system from scratch.

Of course, if your laptop is still under warranty, you should call Dell for a warranty repair.

I'm at my nephews, and he has been on my x61, haven't got a clue what he has done, but now locked out and reading 'windows bitlocker drive encryption pin entry' I haven't got any codes or passwords with...


Sounds as if he may have activated 'bitlocker' on your drive. Ask him for the pin code he used and if you get in disable 'bitlocker'. Highlight the drive in My Computer>right click and select turn off bitlocker.

I hope he remembers the pin code he used!

Dell Media Direct Cannot access hard drive due to bitlocker encry


Sounds like the hard drive was encrypted prior to the upgrade to SP2.

If that's the case, you may have created a password during the encryption process. See this reference to recall the steps for encrypting a hard drive with Bitlocker.

Follow the steps for unlocking your hard drive and you should be ok.

If for some reason, you never encrypted the hard drive and do not have a password, then the encryption may have been caused by some bug in the upgrade and you should contact Microsoft to resolve.

Same proble, MS BitLocker is error message.


Bitlocker is available for Vista Business, Enterprise and Ultimate. This gives more security to your data files against unauthorized access. Once bitlocker detects theres a major change of hardware, such as master boot record, motherboard replacememt and such, it thinks that the hard drive is moved to another computer. Usually, bitlocker encryption can be disabled using the USB drive that was used to store the codes for decryption.
