You might want to take a look at the Rescue & Recovery Deployment Guide which can be downloaded from the Admin Tools page: http://www.lenovo.com/thinkvantageadmin
There is a section in there about compatibility with Vista BitLocker.

Some additional thoughts about the general error message - some items to check.
Could be something as simple as the boot order?
Hardware and software requirements
A computer that meets the minimum requirements for Windows Vista.
A TPM microchip, version 1.2, turned on. (Scenarios 2 and 3).
A Trusted Computing Group (TCG)-compliant BIOS (Scenarios 2 and 3).
Two NTFS drive partitions, one for the system volume and one for the operating system volume. The system volume partition must be at least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) and set as the active partition (Scenario 1).
A BIOS setting to start up first from the hard drive, not the USB or CD drives.

That is absolutely fantastic, and a great example of the kind of contribution that makes this forum a success.
Thanks so much for coming back and making the answer available to others!

I have the same exact problem as you, but I don't have a dock and I can't boot to a Vista DVD to fix the master boot record? Do you have a dock? How can I follow those instructions with no CD / DVD drive in my systeM?

You will need to be able to boot from your Vista DVD via an external DVD optical drive in order to use the command prompt feature in the "Repair" menu of the Vista DVD. I have an external DVD drive that connects to my computer via USB. Check out this link for what you will need to buy if you do not already have one:
