TL;DR trying to decrypt a drive using manage-bde -off g: spits out this error:
ERROR: An error occurred (code 0x80070057): The parameter is incorrect.
got a laptop with a broken screen, i disabled bitlocker protection on the drive, shut it down and swapped it to a new chassis, error upon boot, cannot find boot partition or some such. windows startup repair fails. none of the bootrec, chkdsk or sfc commands do anything to repair the partition. i assumed maybe bitlocker is preventing repairs from running. i try to decrypt the drive and get the above error. curent drive status:
Volume G:  [Data Volume] Size: Unknown GB BitLocker Version: Windows 7 Conversion Status: Fully Encrypted Percentage Encrypted: 100% Encryption Method: AES 128 with Diffuser Protection Status: Protection Off Lock Status: Unlocked Identification Field: None Automatic Unlock: Enabled Key Protectors: Numerical Password TPM Password External Key (Required for automatic unlock)
any ideas on what that error could mean? apparently when encrypting it means you're missing an active volume, but i'm doing the opposite and there is another active volume on that disk that's just fine.
