Further to our previous post on how to stop the BitLocker recovery boot loop, there are situations that may require a little more work to fix as oppose to simply decrypting and encrypting the drive again.
In todays post I will take you through uninstalling the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) driver and then re-enabling the BitLocker.
Note: Because I’ve touched on this subject already, I won’t be showing you how to enable or disable the BitLocker in this post. Instead I will just be uninstalling the driver, if you’re not sure how to disable or enable BitLocker on your machine then click the links above to find out how.
Now let’s get into it! The first thing you will need to do is disable the BitLocker, once that has been done you will need to open ‘Device Manager‘ as an admin and look for ‘Security Devices‘.
In there you will find your ‘Trusted Platform Module‘, simply click that and then click the red cross at the top of the window to uninstall it.
Note: You may need to click ‘View > Show hidden devices‘.
Now restart your machine and enable BitLocker. This should sort out any issues with the TPM data that may have become corrupt in some way causing you to have to enter the recovery key all the time.
