i was stationed abroad and encrypted an external usb harddrive using bitlocker. upon return to the states, my company let me go and with the loss of the job, i had to return the computer with Windows 7 on it. i have tried vista to unlock the drive but no go. do i have to purchase Win7 and install it on a computer to unlock the drive, or is there is a simple solution. i have the password to unlock the drive, i even have the Bitlocker recovery key and the Bitlocker recovery key identification. alas, i cannot get this drive unlocked. Can anyone help me. i have researched the MS docs and no help. Maybe i have looked at the wrong ones tho.
