I reformatted a new HD and chose NTFS (now trying exFAT to see if that helps but doubt it) then I did a System Image from Control Panel/Backup & Restore and it looks as though the image was created successfully but no files were backed up. When doing a separate system back up, I get this error message that prevents the back up:

Windows Backup failed while determining libraries location of one of the users included in backup.
Details: BitLocker Drive Encryption cannot be used because critical BitLocker system files are missing or corrupted. Use Window Startup Repair to restore these files to your computer.

I tried the original MS W7U install disc, but it just wanted to install the whole system and I didn't see where to find this from the Repair Disc. Any idea what's going on? I flying unprotected with no backup at this point.

MS is aware of the problem. It looks like they suggest you disable bitlocker and then re-enable. KB975692
