Im trying to delete bitlocker encryption on my system drive, but im getting this error :

The drive cannot be encrypted because it contains system boot information. Create a separate partition for use as the system drive that contains the boot information and a second partition for use as the operating system drive and then encrypt the operating system drive.

Any idea how to fix it?

    Are you trying to clean install? If so delete / recreate portion during beginning of setup.
