Did the bitlocker not freeze it?

If you were microsoft with account registering,

you register on an other machine

you can look at the dissolving sequence there

My drive is locked too and I've only had the Yoga for 5 months.  This is about my 25 laptop and have never had this problem with any other brand of computer.  Even my Windows 10 thumb drive will not repair or reset Windows 10.  Since I don't have anything but a blank screen and no way  to type into the 'run' box, I'll most likely have my IT guy to replace the hard drive which will get rid of the Lenovo drive to boot which may be the reason for the locking drive.  This is more than aggravating.  This proves we should stay with computers which have served us well perhaps.
