BitLocker: Cannot Enable on Cloned Disk

Enabling BitLocker on a cloned drive may present some errors.

“The path specified in the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) for a BitLocker Drive Encryption integrity-protected application is incorrect. Please verify and correct your BCD settings and try again.”

To remedy:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt

  2. Type:



    select disk 0
    list volume

    This will show output similar to:

      Volume ###  Ltr  Label        Fs     Type        Size     Status     Info
      ----------  ---  -----------  -----  ----------  -------  ---------  --------
      Volume 0     D                       DVD-ROM         0 B  No Media
      Volume 1     C                NTFS   Partition    460 GB  Healthy    Boot
      Volume 2         ESP          FAT32  Partition    260 MB  Healthy    System
      Volume 3     E                NTFS   Partition   1397 GB  Healthy

    Note the volume number of the System partition; in this example it is 2.

  3. To exit DiskPart, type:


  4. Type:

    bcdedit -set {bootmgr} device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2
    bcdedit -set {memdiag} device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2

    (where HarddiskVolume2 uses the volume number from step 2.)

“The system cannot find the file specified”.

This may be resolved as follows:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt.

  2. Type:

    ren %SystemRoot%\System32\Recovery\ReAgent.xml *.old

  3. Reboot.
