Server hangs on Blank Screen or Remove Key Storage Media after setting up Bitlocker with TPM

Hello All,

Dell Poweredge T710 with TPM

I just enabled Bitlocker on the system drive and set it to validate the key before it encrypted the drive.  After reboot the system just hangs with a blank dark screen.

I reboot with the key in and it says that the key is loaded then hangs on the "Remove key storage media"

I am looking at the screen now.  I don't want to reinstall the whole thing if I can help it.

Please help.

I found the solution.

It is very important to understand that my OS drive never got to the point of actually being encrypted so I was able to repair/replace the boot loader with the information from

It boot back up as if nothing ever happened.
