There is no solution to a lost supervisor password other than replacing the motherboard.  As far as the HDD password, it is encrypted in the BIOS but the encryption algorithm is the same on most models of a similar age.  (You don't say what model you have.)  If you have another machine or anything T400 or newer with an ultrabay, you can remove the password there

As I said, no way around the BIOS password.  I haven't tried a disk from TP Yoga, but I would guess you could remove the HDD PW in the main bay or ultrabay of a newer T or W series
