    Check here in case its backed up on a microsoft account.
    https://account.microsoft.com/devices/recoverykey

    Most likely this one caused it.

    If you don't have the recovery key then you'll need to factory reset it or otherwise clean install it.

    Hi I have same problem with bitlocker key request after update.

    After days playing with with different settings i manage to login without that key and without loosing data.

    My solution for envy x360 :

    stage 1 In bios : boot options, change secure boot to disable . save and exit bios

    stage 2 In bios : boot options, change secure boot to enabled , clear all secure boot keys, load hp factory default keys . save and exit .

    Start windows and wait bitlocker key request should not show any more.

    log in with your credential disable bitlocker or save key on pen drive (not on hdd/sdd ).
