    How do you remove the timeout for bitlocker password at boot? No TPM.

    My laptop was running win 10 when I upgraded it to an edu license so I could bitlocker encode its hard drive. It has no TPM hardware so I had to type a password at boot time to boot. I forgot how I was able to disable the random timeout on that password entry. It is very annoying. It times out and shuts the computer power at random, between 1 second and 30 seconds after displaying the entry. After the annual update, that has come back to haunt me once more.

    Anyone still remembering how to disable this non-sense bitlocker password boot timeout? I'll write down the solution this time!

    You have to run the cmd as admin. I tried power shell as admin and it didn't understand the syntax.

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?
