Bitlocker Encrypted USB Drive

Let suppose I have encrypted a USB pen drive by Bitlocker, Most of the Windows versions have Bitlocker installed and the system prompt for the password, and decrypt the USB drive.
There are certain versions of Windows 7,8,10 like Home Single edition in which Bitlocker is not installed. Now what will happen if I plugged it in a such system, whether it will prompt for the password and decrypt the USB drive or not?

Hello,

From what I understand, BL'd flash drives are accessible over Windows 7 or later no matter the version (home, ent, pro etc).

You can't ENCRYPT from all Windows versions, but you can DECRYPT from all of them.
