    Thanks for the link. That allowed me to unlock the bios but still being prompted for hard drive password. I didn't find any place to set it in the bios.

    the password is also generated by the website.. as long as its the original dell hdd.
    if it dont work might have to update or downgrade bios version.
    or try mhdd 4.5 ata secure erase command
    next time remove hdd before entering pwd.
