This is a Windows matter, is it not?
And this here is a Linux forum.
Wouldn't you be better off asking on a Windows forum?

Also, you should remove your email address - it is publicly visible now, spammers are probably already flooding your Inbox?

Bitlocker is a Microsoft product...and you want to load Windows. What you should do is CONTACT MICROSOFT.

No, this isn't the place to come for personalized, one-on-one, free tech support; this isn't a help desk, and we aren't going to email you. Either participate in the forum, or pay someone to help you one-on-one.

::EDIT::
And did you do ANY research, since you say you've been trying for a week?? Because just putting "reload windows surface pro 4 with bitlocker" into Google pulls up, as the VERY FIRST HIT:
https://www.repairwin.com/fix-cannot...ith-bitlocker/

...a step-by-step guide. With pictures. And the second hit is from the Microsoft forums.
