  1. Did you use a USB drive to save your key at all?
  2. Plug in a usb keybd to enter your key then - otherwise it looks like you'll be doing a factory reset, if you even can.
  3. A BitLocker Recovery Key is 48 digits (0-9). If you see hexadecimal (0-9 and A-F), you are likely looking at the Recovery Key ID. Check and see if you saved it to SkyDrive (http://skydrive.live.com/RecoveryKey) or elsewhere.

    If you did not back it up, what you have now is called experience.

    Good Luck
