Question about supervisor password on E330

2014-07-13, 10:36 AM

I want to confirm is it true that if supervisor password is set in BIOS on Thinkpad E330, the harddisk password is also set? So if then I move the E330's harddisk to another laptop or try to access the harddisk using another device, it won't work because it's encrypted with password. Is that true?

No. The supervisor password has no effect on the disk password. You may be confused because the disk allows 2 separate PWs, user password and master password.

I read from here:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=migr-59377

 

It's said that:

"Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password."

 

I wonder if it is true for all thinkpads or it's only for thinkpad non-Edge series?
