I just used BCWipe Total Wipeout on three drives. Now, when I try to boot up, the Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager says "One or more hard disk drives are locked with a password. Reboot your system and enter a password for any locked dive or remove the locked drive." Well, I was never prompted for a password. I can't get into BIOS unless I unhook that hard drive (there isn't a place in bios to enter a hard drive password anyway). I have isolated the hard drive (by unhooking them one by one) and it's one of the WD3000HLFS. I have looked online for jumper settings but can't find anything useful. It was running in RAID0 with the other WD3000HLFS. I un-raided them ran total wipeout on each. I have no idea what to do :( . My motherboard is an Asus P6T deluxe v.2 by the way. Does anyone know what happened or how I can fix it?

Well, unfortunately assistance with password circumvention is not allowed on this site. My advice would be to contact your hard drive and/or motherboard manufacturer and see if they can help you.

I am not asking for assistance with password circumvention. I just wiped the disks. None of the three were password protected before the wipe. Now, one of them is saying it has a password. I know this has to be a bug, because I'm never even prompted for a password. I could not care less what's on the disks, because I just wiped them! I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to reset the disk firmware perhaps?
