Hi - I'm trying to solve a problem for a friend. He handeled me over his laptop and said everytime he booted a blue box ask for HDD password - My friend says he never has set this up. What I've done so far: 1. Reset BIOS to default - no luck 2. Tried to remove HDD password - no luck 3. Removed CMOS battry for 5 hours - no luck 4. Flashed BIOS - no luck 5. Moved HDD to external box (USB)- unable to see the HDD It seems the HDD password is set on the hard drive - Anyone have an idea how I can get the data from the HDD?
