Hp drive encryption

Rick791

 

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

I used to use a "loaned" HP EliteBook laptop from my (former) corporation, and it had three passwords:

1) BIOS

2) Hard Disk

3) Windows

 

The IT group used a commercial product that "hid" the first one and synchronized the other two -- so that when the PC booted, you were presented with a custom login screen, and when you entered the correct password, it both logged you into Windows and granted access to the hard disk.

 

There was simply no way to bypass or "crack" what they did, so that when 2) and 3) got out of synch, I had to take the laptop into the IT group, and they took it into the Lab and reset it.

 

In your case, I have no way of knowing what is running on your PC.  If you have used an HP product to encrypt the hard drive, that password is unrelated to your BIOS password -- and we have no way of helping you on that, nor is there any way around it.  IF there was, there would be no point in encrypting your hard drive.
