Windows 7: BitLocker gone bad, cant boot windows

BitLocker gone bad, cant boot windows

Hey guys, once again I have placed myself in a bit of a pickle.
(I am using Windows 8)

30 minutes ago I created a new drive partition for my 128gb OCZ Agility 3 SSD, the partition was 1000mb and I formatted it before I encrypted it with BitLocker.

After the encryption process was done, I rebooted windows and suddenly the black screen appears ''Your boot config files are missing or contains errors'' or something like that.

I did not have any extenal drives connected to the computer at the time.

I find it hard to believe that Windows/BitLocker managed to either encrypt or delete my boot configuration files......

So here I am, on my mothers computer, I NEED HELP!

Thank you very much for all answers
