Do I have to decrypt my BitLocker-protected drive to download and install system updates and upgrades?
Operating system upgrades from Windows Anytime Upgrade require that the operating system drive be decrypted prior to installation. If you upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7 or install other non-Microsoft updates, you might need to disable or suspend BitLocker so that a new measurement of the system can be taken after the upgrade or update has been applied. Software and operating system updates from Microsoft Update do not require drive decryption or that you disable or suspend BitLocker.
