    I was able to use USB mouse to continue with the Windows setup. But Bitlocker is still preventing me from installing Windows...
    Try deleting the partition then you should be able to install to the unallocated space that creates.

    Thought that would work. I had the same problem (and solution) when trying to clean install 64-bit to a partition that had an existing 32-bit install.
