    It could have been from only wanting to clean install on a second partition on an encrypted disk instead of wiping the whole disk.
    I've just read this

    If you wipe hard drive without disabling the BitLocker encryption and then install an operating system to the drive that doesn't support or recognize BitLocker, the drive will be locked. So, to prepare the disk for formatting, you should decrypt it in advance via Control Panel.
    I don't know the source nonetheless It could be the reason, as he said he was installing home version.

    Last question mate, is It neccesary to delete all the partitions to do a clean installilation on a driver with bitlocker?

    I mean, you have uefi with 5 partitions with bitlocker enabled on C(Os) and D(data)

    -Recovery
    -System
    -Msr
    -Primary-bitlocker
    -D(data)-bitlocker

    To do the clean installation should I delete D as well? Or just the ohers and install W on the unlocated space and when it finishes I'll be able to access my D partitions with bitlocker

    Personally, I find it safer to have your data saved to a separate disk than on the same disk Windows is installed on. This way you have a separation between them.

    If you don't delete all partitions on a disk, then it would be best to decrypt the drive first to turn off BitLocker. You can always encrypt it again after the new installation has finished.
