How to access bitlocker encrypted drive in linux?

While installing Ubuntu I accidentally overwrote the boot sector that loaded Windows. One of my drives was encrypted using BitLocker Drive Encryption.

Ubuntu doesn't even show that drive. Is there some way I could open that drive on Ubuntu? Or do I have to install windows again or connect that drive to a Windows pc just to get the files from the drive??

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Why don't you just try and recover the boot sector? You need to use Windows to solve this problem, Ubuntu has never been able to read a encrypted drive ( encrypted by BitLocker ) likely never will be able to. – Ramhound Nov 1 '12 at 12:04
  • That is a solution, thanks. I will however wait for a few more opinions. – Imran Nov 1 '12 at 12:06

What Ramhound told you is correct. Although there are highly technical operations using experimental software to accomplish this from GNU-Linux no reputable source that I'm aware of has published anything solid as of yet.
