Can you see D partition in File Explorer?
Find D partition in explorer, right-click it and select enable BitLocker, follow the guide to complete encryption.

Try to use manage-bde on command to enable BitLocker on your D partition.

You need to manually create a system partition for bitlocker.
Parameter is incorrect error message when you try to enable BitLocker if you don't have a separate active partition in Windows Server 2008 Core and Windows 2008 R2 Core Edition
