I know this post is old, but nearly 3 years later you saved me from what was becoming a very frustrating experience. I had to reset the password because the T510 is going to a different user and I could not figure out how to remove the password and start over. Thank you.

I have a Lenovo X201, and added an HDD password many moons ago. When I PC boots, Im prompted to enter HDD password, it takes it, and I'm in.....everything is fine. I'm due to return PC since the HDD is my personal, but I'm trying to remove Hard Disk1 password. On the Hard Disk1 Password BOIS screen, I enter the user password. There's only 1 option, and that is [User]. I enter the same password I've always entered when maching prompts for HDD password, but it's not taking it. I've followed the instructions by enabling and disabling all password features with no luck. What am I doing wrong? I know the HDD user password since it works when I boot the machine and prompted. This is really annoying, I'm due to return X201 in a couple days, this is terrible! I was able to backup all my data, but now I have a brick HDD once I return the box! I have another HDD which I played around enabling and disabling HDD password with both admin and user password, and was able to remove it. Something is hosed with this HDD. I never used it on any other machine but the x201. Does anyone know any other steps I can do?

i have a lenovo idea pad z560. this has a bios insydeh20 rev 3.5....
the hard drive is locked and wants a password that i don't have and i cant unlock the hard drive. when i am in the bios/ security everything is shaded out except the supervisor password space. i could enter a supervisor password but i don't know if this would let me undo the user password which is grayed out. this says that it is no pass word set but it is.
i have gone to every area and don't see the Passphrase" setting. this bios looks very basic like it is just the bare bones version. maybe some things are hidden. i have never seen a bios this trimmed down.
