  1. When you say locked, do you mean it has a bios password for HDD or a windows password?

    If it's the latter, then you can boot using a floppy or USB or even CD as then format it.
  2. It is BIOS locked as it came out of a bad GATEWAY. I just want to format it and use it in my Dell Laptop. What can I do to get it formatted?

  5. Steve,
    From what I see this program Will ONLY work with a MAC PC. I need a tool to wipe a hard drive with the drive locked at the bios level. If it was just a windows password. Well that is a very EASY Hack. This is not a Windows password. Please help with something for WINDOWS. Thanks, Charles :sweat:
