Windows enters Automatic Repair when starting Full Disk Encryption (FDE)
Article ID: KB508 email a link to this article


When attempting to start Full Disk Encryption on a Legacy (MBR) BIOS machine running Windows 10 1809, Windows will enter Automatic Repair.

This can also occur when a system is already Full Disk Encrypted and is updated to Windows 10 1809 from a previous Windows version.  



This is a known issue with DESlock+ 4.9.4 on Legacy systems running Windows 10 1809 (October and November builds). 

This does NOT affect UEFI systems. 



Please upgrade to a newer version of DESlock+/ESET Endpoint Encryption (DESlock+ 4.9.5/ESET Endpoint Encryption 5.0.0 or greater)
