I have two HP ProBook 6560b laptops, with one running Windows 7 Enterprise with BitLocker enabled. I am trying to test the scenario where one BitLocker-protected machine dies completely (i.e. perhaps motherboard failure), so I am just moving the encrypted hard drive to the exact same model laptop. This is all fine, I can decrypt the hard drive with my recovery key.
However, as soon as the I've typed the recovery key in the machine blue screens. If I put the HDD back in the original machine it works fine. I am currently using TPM only as the authentication means to BitLocker.
Blue Screen details: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR 0x0000007a pci.sys
My understanding is that you are able to move around a BitLocker-protected drive, as long as you know the recovery key and put the drive in a relatively similar machine. I've tried repairing the Windows installation, booting into safe mode etc but no luck.
Thanks in advance.
