Forgot HardDisk Password for Thinkpad E520



I am trying to help son's school computer department where they set a Hard disk password for Thinkpad Edge E520 laptop.  Is there any recourse?  I looked up Lenovo site and found it is not possible.


Any noble soul who can advise?

welcome to the community.


there's no way to remove/recover a ThinkPad hard disk password, other than to remember it and enter it in the appropriate BIOS screen/field. if the password can't be remembered, the drive is unusable.


sorry for the bad news.
