Hello @Richard Famiglietti
This usually happens when the file C:\Windows\System32\Recovery\ReAgent.xml is corrupt or inaccessible. It seems plausible that there is some "corruption" as the image was ported from a different hardware.
The solution is to rename or delete the file (it will be recreated!) when restarting and trying to enable bitlocker again.
Hope this helps with your query,
