Preferred Solution: Lenovo X270 bitlocker recovery when in docking station

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:X270 Bitlocker requests recovery key every time

Not much help here, but we are having the same issues as yourself, corporate Image using Windows 10 everyboot will prompt for a BitLocker key, working fine for all other models just the X270 / T470 I suspect something in the BIOS is causing this, but not sure what exactly. Regards Stewart

I have a T530 with a Docking station and a USB connected printer.The printer is a HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M475dw(CE864A) with a connection for USB Sticks Everytime the laptop is talken off the docking station and powered off then placed back on to the dock and powered by one BitLocker locks.  If the printer is disconnected then there is no issue. Has anyone ran into something like with when using bitlocker for encrytion?-I did update the Bios and updated the OS and updated the Lenovo system updates as well.

Answer:Bootup Laptop with Docking Station with Lid closed with external monitor attached to docking station

First step: Leave your laptop turned off and dock your laptop with the lid closed. Once docked, then power on from the power button on the docking station. If that doesn't do it, then right-click your desktop, choose properties to display the Display Settings. Click on the settings tab and select dual monitor from the drop down radio button. Check the extend my monitor ... or something of that sort.Then go back and repeat the first step.
