Windows 10: Bitlocker code not known

    BSOD 0xc0000001 Bitlocker code not known

    I have a client that has a Microsoft Surface Pro. It has a BSOD error code 0xc0000001. I have tried many ways to repair but I am unable to since Bitlocker has locked the hard drive. The client swears they never activated it and does not know the code to unlock. They did not have a microsoft account so I cant go that route. Any suggestions to unlock hard drive without the bitlocker code?

    Greetings Buffalocc ^_^,

    As per the below tutorial -
    BitLocker Drive Encryption - Unlock a Locked OS Drive - Windows 7 Help Forums

    It seems that you need the key to unlock Bitlocker. I am no expert at this but if there was a way around, don't you think it would have been exploited?
