The error message you’re seeing suggests that the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) cannot be enabled while BitLocker is active on the same partition. Here’s steps e on how to check this issue:
Disable BitLocker: Before enabling Windows RE, you need to disable BitLocker. Open an elevated command prompt and type the following command:
manage-bde -protectors -disable C:
Please replace “C:” with your WinRE partition drive letter if it’s different.
Enable WinRE: Now you should enable WinRE with the following command in the command prompt:
Recheck WinRE Status: You can verify if WinRE is enabled with the following command:
Re-enable BitLocker: Once you’ve successfully enabled WinRE, you can re-enable BitLocker using the following command:
manage-bde -protectors -enable C:
Again, replace “C:” with your WinRE partition drive letter if it’s different.
This process temporarily removes the protection offered by BitLocker, so it’s crucial to re-enable BitLocker as soon as possible. Be sure to backup all essential data before starting this process.
