Hard Drive Password - moved hard drive to another ThinkPad



Will the hard drive password work if I move the hard drive from a damaged SL500 to a SL510. I set a power-on and hard drive password when the hard drive was in the SL500 (before the laptop got damaged).


Thanks for your help!

Hi tango91a,


Can't say for sure, but you'll definitely be able to disable the HDD password on another SL500, and IIRC POP is only tied to the system board and not the HDD.
