I've been doing a slightly older version of this for years with Bitlocker-encrypted VHDs.
As mentioned, it does prompt for a Bitlocker password on startup, but it is possible to miss the prompt.
If that happens, I right-click the drive in File Explorer and select the option to Unlock Drive.
I've also found that adding a slight delay to the auto-mount task (one of the options on the screenshot at step 9 above) means that I'm more likely to see the password prompt on my very old laptop.

Good idea David. I added a tip for this under step 9 for any others that may want to delay this task.
