HP Folio 9470m: Drive is Locked - how to unlock?

HP Folio 947
Linux

I bought a new Samsung SSD with self-encrypting capabilities.

In the HP Bios/settings, I had the possibility to put a "drive lock" on the disk (I think it's OPAL).

 

I installed an OS, worked for a couple of weeks, everything went fine. During startup, I always had to enter a password to unlock the drive, which is exactly what I wanted.

 

Today, I booted the notebook again, this time I maybe mistyped the password two times, now the drive is locked. I do have the correct password here, but I can't find an option within the BIOS to unlock the drive. No matter where I click within the BIOS, it always tell's me "Drive is Locked".

 

Now, how can I *unlock* the drive when I have the correct password?

I tried:

  * Security -> DriveLock -> "Set DriveLock Password" -> Error: Drive is Locked

  * Security -> DriveLock -> disable "DriveLock password on restart" -> has no effect

 

Help 😞

Answering myself: I don't know it was because of my entering SpareRecovery (and rebooting) or if the Drive Lock expired, but I was able to unlock the drive.
