Do you have a Microsoft password for the device?

Customer Replay

when try restart and come up fix bitlocker,but again ask this number

Please try to open a web browser on another device and Sign in to your Microsoft account to find your recovery key. This is the most likely place to find your recovery key.

If I put in new Hard Drive still ask recovery number?

No, it protects only the current disk, also you can reinstall Windows, but all data will be lost.
