Bitlocker request key after every windows update

Last Modified: 2017-04-24
i have Lenovo laptop of different models ( W530 & W540 & X1 Carbons)

Bitlocker GPO is enabled and since we started using X1 Carbons we are having an issue that if the battery dies or windows update is installed, upon reboot we need to provide a bitlocker key. this is not happening to any of our W530/W540 laptops.

is there a workaround to this that you guys know about?

thanks for all your help
