Decrypt without USB

I just wanted to know that is there any way to decrypt the laptop without USB.

We have one Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop(T470) and we want to decrypt this laptop by using USB but this laptop is not detecting the USB.We tried a lot but still the result is same.

Can we do anything in this scenario?What would be the solution at this stage.

I request if anyone can suggest something.

Re: Decrypt without USB

I have seen many times that different USB drives have different results. The best results I have seen are using generic or low cost drives.

Depending if the system is using UEFI or Legacy BIOS mode there are different options. If in Legacy BIOS, you can create a DETech disk on a floppy and boot to it using a USB floppy drive. This method in my experience has a 100% success rate. Otherwise, you can try using The EZPE Builder for Data Recovery to create a WinPE version on either USB or CD.
