need to do a system restore

HP Recommended
HP Notebook x2 - 10-p092ms
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to login to laptop because its been a while and I don't have the password.  I also never linked the local account to my email.  Bitlocker is apparently turned on the laptop so I am unable to do a system restore

Any ideas on this

I noticed HP has a windows 10  64 bit recovery kit that I would have to order.  Would this solve my bitlocker issue too?

Yes --  a complete restore, known as a factory reset, will do what you want.


If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.

Here is the link:


Once you have the PC restored, use the BitLocker Management function to print off your key and to back it up to a USB stick. That way, in the future, you will have the key available if you need it.
