Cannot encrypt Windows To go drive with bitlocker. - toca - 06-27-2015

Hi
I'm having a problem with encrypting my new Windows to go drive made with vhd option . I have followed this guide (How to Turn On or Off BitLocker for Windows 8 OS Drive with or without TPM) that required changing group policy settings. I did that and now everytime I try to encrypt my drive Windows says "Changes made to your computer require that you restart before running BitLocker Setup" however a simple restart does not help. Any suggestions?

The problem is that without the vhd option i'm stuck on windows logo and cannot boot any further.

Microsoft says: Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption cannot be used to encrypt the host volume that contains VHD files that are used for native VHD boot, and BitLocker cannot be used on volumes that are contained inside a VHD.
