A co-worker recently got locked out of her laptop after a Windows 10 update caused the system to go into a reboot loop because of a blue screen. There is no way to go into safe mode due to Windows 10 elimination of the F8 key. It does not go into recovery mode. I tried disabling Secure Boot mode in the BIOS but that brings up a BitLocker key required screen. As far as I know BitLocker was not enabled intentionally on this machine, but I am reading from another post that:
"Bitlocker is not enabled but the process has been initialized as this happens during OOBE - Out of the Box Experience (one of the requirements of a Connected Standby Machine is Bitlocker)."
I assume that BitLocker might have been in the "waiting for activation" state since we have another equal laptop in that state bought around the same time. So the question is does this "waiting for activation" state prevent access to the drive?
The more important question is, is there a way to get out of the blue screen of death loop?
