What does "allowedinmemorysettings" in the bcd do?

I'm trying to find out what this entry in the BCD does and google isn't helping :/

From here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/bcd/bcdlibraryelementtypes

BcdLibraryIntegerList_AllowedInMemorySettings

Indicates whether or not an in-memory BCD setting passed between boot apps will trigger BitLocker recovery. This value should not be modified as it could trigger a BitLocker recovery action. The element data format is BcdIntegerElement.

Note This value is supported starting in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

Thank you, that satiates my curiosity. I don't think that variable is in the BCD if your motherboard doesn't support UEFI.

No problem. Based on the description, it sounds like a safety trigger to kick of Bitlocker that has to do with secure boot. Maybe the Windows Internals books has more information.

BTW - I found it by googling with bing.
