    Thank you my friend! This worked after trying dozens of other methods. The steps that you outlined were so simple, but trying to figure that out without instruction would not be easy. Great work!!

    ✔Thank you! Your instructions worked! I'm unfamiliar with pc repair/recovery, yet was able to understand enough to re install Windows 10 in a crashed, encrypted, blue screen pc. I mistakenly enabled multithreading in the UEFI, ran out of space, had to delete everything, ended up with two Local Drives (C) and (D) instead of one. But it works!!✔

    Thank you so much!!!! I have been locked out of my laptop forever and I didn't care about it being wiped, just wanted to use it again. After a million other attempts I have finally found your method and am currently at the reinstall windows phase, which I've never been able to get close to. Thanks again!!!!!

    I have the same issue trying to upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10. I understand the free upgrade should still work. I do not have a windows 10 product code just my windows 8.1 product code. Once I am done getting past the bitlocker issue and windows 10 is loaded, will I be able to use my windows 8.1 product key (license) to use windows 10? I don't want to do this whole procedure + windows installation only to discover I can't use windows 10. I know this is sort of a whole different question but thought I would ask here first.

      If Windows 8.1 is legitimate, then the free upgrade to Windows 10 should work.

    If I didn't delete the partition that says system, would it mess up anything? I wasn't sure to delete or not.

      You will not mess anything, because you 'll install Windows from scratch.

    Worked great, but now it won't boot from the usb media installaion tool. I have a surface UEFI, changed boot to usb, but it only brings up the PC information screen

      Re-check the BIOS settings, or try with another USB installation media for UEFI.

    Excellent! I was initially concerned about losing the product key but it worked brilliantly. No issues. It's like a brand new laptop all over again.

    If I perform this operation, will the freshly installed Windows 10 recognize the old product key? Or will I have to purchase a new Windows 10 key?

    For the 5th step, is it 'delete volume override' or 'select volume override'? Thank you.

    I had a Bitlocker encrypted Dell laptop with no 48 digit key, nor the Windows logon password. It belonged to a friend's mother who had died. Your directions were absolutely perfect! My compliments sir!
