    From here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/bcd/bcdlibraryelementtypes


    Indicates whether or not an in-memory BCD setting passed between boot apps will trigger BitLocker recovery. This value should not be modified as it could trigger a BitLocker recovery action. The element data format is BcdIntegerElement.

    Note This value is supported starting in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

    Thank you, that satiates my curiosity. I don't think that variable is in the BCD if your motherboard doesn't support UEFI.
