    Unable to format drive


    Hello ! I need urgent help.

    I have a 960gb ssd from Corsair.

    I installed Dual Boot on it, 2 Windows 10 Pro For Workstations accounts.

    On one of the Windows accounts, I used Bitlocker to Encrypt 3 Partitions, including the one with Windows installed.

    This Part that had Windows installed I stop booting, and it is no longer possible, windows on it.

    The second Windows partition, starts normally. but do not let anything change, everything is installed or uninstalled, when windows is restarted everything goes back as it was.

    I have the Bitlocker Password, and the Recovery Keys for all saved partitions, and I can normally access these partitions.

    I have already saved all the important data contained in these partitions encrypted by Bitlocker.

    The only thing I want now is to Erase all of these partitions, and have clean HD to use again.

    Well, I already tried to delete the partitions, in many ways and nothing works.

    I've tried with:

    Ubunto - DiskPart - Total erasure. WindowsPE

    Nothing erases the encrypted partitions, I already changed the computer hard drive and tried the precedents and nothing answered.

    My computed is with 2 hds the encrypted and another one, I installed windows on it I open the encrypted partitions

    Right-click on the partition with Bitlocker, go to Manage Bitlocker, click on Bitlocker and give the following error message "A DEVICE CONNECTED TO THE SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING".

    I tried with Manage-bde to disable encryption from the following error message "HRESULT EXCEPTION: 0X8007001F"

    I want to know if there is a solution for me to recover my SSD, I paid a lot for it.

    And because of Bitlocker I can't use this SSD anymore.

    I just want to format the entire ssd to reuse it.

    but I've tried everything for formatting and nothing works.

    help me please.

    thank you.

    I would create a Linux Live CD (USB), boot from that, and use GParted.

    I tried with LIve cd and using Gparted.

    But he can't format the disc, I think it has some protection against recording, but I can't remove it.

    Both the disk and partitions can be read-only, use diskpart to clear these attributes.
