Henning hi and welcome

It tells you in the error to use the Bitlocker recovery to verify the drive. Was the drive changed by you? di you have a AV current and running?

Hi Ken,

"Was the drive changed by you?" No its the drive in the computer. Did not run Bitlocker before. AV is on an off. Doesnt work with and doesnt work without.
