Hi @gargurel ,

Thank you for writing in here.

If you have decided to decrypt the machine using EPO Product Settings policy, and if you do not want to see the PBA screen. Kindly do the below before you start the decryption.

Step 1:

Kindly enable autoboot option in your decrypt policy

Step 2: 

Then set deselect the enable encryption option in the MDE Product settings policy -> General tab. This starts your decryption.

 

By the autoboot feature, you are disabling the McAfee Drive Encryption PBA screen and in parallel by the step 2 your machine will start the decryption.

@gargurel Thank you for choosing McAfee Support Community

PBA will be seen as long as Drive Encryption is Active and will be turned off only only after 100 % Decryption.

While configuring decryption policy ensure to disable "Enable Drive Encryption for the system with assigned or local users" in Enable Policy under "General " tab . Below will be the screenshot for your reference.

Also for your information McAfee don't recommend hard reboot at the time on decryption or encryption .
