    Thanks for sharing how you resolved this issue. I agree that having more security is a big advantage, but many people aren't going to want to jump through more hoops. Heck, most people don't even turn Bitlocker on.

    For anyone else who is ever in the same boat, step 5 on this page is what you need to do. As it states, you need to unencrypt your hard-drive, then configure the settings in step 5, and then encrypt your drive again.

    Now it asks me for a Bitlocker pin number whenever I start-up my computer.

    THANK YOU to everyone for your incredible assistance. I have enjoyed far more knowledgeable folk and superior support here than I have ever seen on Microsoft's lousy forums where their own staff have little idea about the products they supposedly specialise in. It's a real pity that, now that we are even into version 10 of Windows, even the simplest of steps is made into a headache that can take 10+ hours to resolve. For the life of me, I don't know why Bitlocker can't just ask you "would you like to set-up a password when you start-up your computer?" instead of having to go into the deeper recesses of the operating system's configuration options and taking 25 steps to be able to so.

    Thanks everyone!
