HP Spectre x360 - 13t-aw000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 11

Out of the blue, my Spectre laptop went into BitLocker mode, I can't get in without my key. I'm not sure what triggered it. I was never provided this key when I purchased my laptop. I checked my Microsoft account for the key, but my device did not appear there. I don't have it written down or stored on a flash drive anywhere. I tried fiddling with the secure boot option, and turning it on and off again, but nothing worked. Is there any option left besides resetting my laptop? And how would I do that? I tried to reset it a couple times already, but my laptop was saying it couldn't even reset without the Bitlocker code.
