    I installed Vista and encrypted OS-Partition and an additional Data Partition
    with bitlocker. After this my OS Partition goes corrupted with bluescreens
    etc.
    I tryed to repair something but without success. Unfortunately my partition
    information seems also lost during my trying to solve the problem. This means
    everytime when I try to boot with installation DVD ant type in "diskpart:
    list volumes" then I could see Boot Partition, CD-Drive but no bitlocker
    partition. The command "Diskpart: list partition" shows the encrypted
    bitlocker partitions.

    Now I would like to extract my data partition with the Bitlocker Repair Tool
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928202), but this does not work because I
    have to type in a volume name which lost like described before (Bitlocker
    Recovery is available)

    My question is there a possibility to edit the partition table in that way,
    that Vista boot CD will see or assign volume names to my existing bitlocker
    partitions. Or a possibility to mark the existing partitions as bitlocker.

    I would like to extract data with bitlocker repair tool but do not know how
    to access partition without volume names ? Could anybody help ?
