Bitlocker accessing problems

hey there, and the thx for an awesome forum

i have a really big problem with bitlocker.

i have encrypted an external harddrive on my own pc using windows 7 ultimate bitlocker with a tpm, but i didnt use a flashdrive for recovery or whatever its called.

but now i want to access the data from my girlfriends computer(running vista ultimate, with bitlocker installed) but it wont allow me to even press the piassword, do i need to bypass the tpm fuction on her computer first or doesnt it matter?

so my question is, how do i access my data without unlocking the drive from my own pc, and is what im asking possible at all?

welcome to sevenforums!
I haven't used bitlocker a lot but I know more than enough to tell you that most likely no.......
Bitlocker is configured for security. Allowing the hdd to open somewhere else is bad for security. Most likely, this isn't possible...
btw, it's too bad that it took so long to respond to you =(
