I have a couple of partitions that I have encrypted with bitlocker, password to unlock, no TPM. The system drive is not encrypted. Do I need to decrypt the data drives before doing the install?

I can't say that you need to, but I would certainly be inclined to do so anyway, even if it's not strictly required.

Have you relocated the personal data folders (documents, pictures, music, videos, desktop, downloads) to the encrypted drives? Keep the recovery key at hand just in case you will require it.
