Bitlocker Orange Screen Fix

Solution ***MAKE SURE THEY KNOW THEIR BITLOCKER KEY BEFORE DOING THIS***
1. Suspend Bitlocker (open elevated cmd prompt)
"manage-bde -status" <ENTER> (note the drive letter of the encrypted drive as you need to enter it in the next command)
"manage-bde -protectors -disable C:" <ENTER> (suspends bitlocker for the next reboot)
2. "bfsvc.exe %windir%\boot /v" (disables the fancy windows 10 splash screen and uses verbose boot mode)
3. Reboot the Computer
4. If the user is not prompted to enter the bitlocker key with this reboot have them login and reboot again.
5. They will now be prompted to enter the bitlocker key after every reboot.
6. Orange/white screen is gone
7. DONE
