hi there
trying to unlock a drive encrypted with bitlocker and upon entering the correct password bitlocker hangs. The drive spins and seeks while as if its processing but after few min i get the error message "i get is The system cannot find the specified file". i have tried recovering the password with the recovery keys. no luck. have tried it with a usb to sata adapter but same issue.

Trying to install this (Windows6.0-KB928201-x64) but it says the update is not applicable to your computer. I have 7 x64bit SP1 so i dont know what the problem is.

Its for vista x64 (6.0) not win7 x64 (which is 6.1). You could try the bottom post here

Thats what it says (not me) its for vista not win7. Use the repair-bde command instead from the command prompt. Dont ask me how to use it, I dont use / bother with bitlocker
