I am wondering if it would be possible to take out a Bitlocker encrypted SSD from a PC, put in an other one and use the PC, then swap the original drive back without it having to be Bitlocker unlocked.

    Even if it's be possible it's most probably against your company policy to even disassemble your laptop and as such it's off-topic here. – Máté Juhász Nov 7 at 10:10
  • I don't see how company policy is relevant to a technical question. – dcm Nov 7 at 10:36

    Check out the help section on what topics are considered on topic. Your question is related to corporate IT. In addition you're trying to circumvent security mechanisms that have been put in place by your company. Depending on your country and company this could lead to immediate termination. Likely what you're describing is possible but you won't have access to information that's needed for it to work. – Seth Nov 7 at 10:45

    If it's employer property, they have a right to control risks; it's not your personal computer to use as you see fit. Theoretically, swapping the drives shouldn't be an issue, but suppose you accidentally damage the laptop in the process, or affect the Windows license, or unintentionally introduce malware that corrupts the firmware or allows breaking security measures. You could end up losing your job or worse. Just ask your IT folks. If it isn't an issue, let them take the responsibility. – fixer1234 Nov 7 at 23:51
