It should have asked you for a password ***** you booted the computer. Did it not do that. And will the computer boot into Windows or is that the only drive

Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

This program will unlock it but you need to be running Windows on a 32 bit machine and the drive has to be the secondary drive also the actual program costs money but you can download a tool free to see if it will work

it will not boot. ask for password but do not know
Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

That's a problem. Computer systems are a lot more secure these days. Passwords can no longer be easily bypassed by an expert

You will need to put the drive in another computer and try to run that program to get it unlocked
