    Bitlocker - light blue screen on startup

    So turn on bit locker because i want to start encrypting my desktop computer and when i restart i get a light blue windows 10 screen. Anyone know whats going on?

    I did the full disk encryption option at once and then it wanted to reboot. Not sure if i can post a screenshot to this post but when i get home ill add it.

    I cannot find any results in my searches about anyone dealing with this yet. Could it be still running the encryption on startup?

    Not sure how you've enabled full-system encryption.

    If you're using TPM + PIN or USB + PIN, that blue screen is where you must enter your unlock PIN.

    i enabled non tpm bitlocker encryption for windows 10 - I ended up wiping the drive and starting from scratch. It was time for my yearly "refresh" anyway (wipe and format then fresh install)

    My best guess is that is wasn't done encrypting and was doing it on reboot? After 2 hours of it sitting there i gave up on it. The screen was a lite blue one (windows 8 / 10 style ) plain lite blue screen and it wasnt doing anything but responding to a restart.

    This can be closed.

option to only use password for Bitlocker?
On WIndows 10 Professional, can you use Bitlocker on a PC that has no TPM, and also not use a USB key? That is, can you specify that your drive will be unlocked solely by a password?

No Bitlocker
I am unsure if this is applicable here, however, it is about security. I want to encrypt a drive and thought I would use Windows Bitlocker, I can't locate it on windows 10. Is there a substitute for bitlocker on Windows 10? :cool:
