What happened to the drive to make it not accessible?  PSID revert can reset a drive that has been managed by OPAL security software, but it can't help in the case where there's an unknown HDD password.

For PSID-revert, I use an open-source linux tool.  First, you have to get the 32-character PSID from the drive label.  Then, use an open-source linux tool to revert it.

 

  • Use the “Rescue System” image:  https://github.com/Drive-Trust-Alliance/sedutil/wiki/Test-the-Rescue-system
  • Follow the instructions on that page to write the image to USB stick
  • On the PC, turn off Secure Boot and enable legacy boot mode (the Rescue System image is legacy-only)
  • Boot to it, then:
    • sedutil-cli --query /dev/nvme0n1
    • sedutil-cli --yesIreallywanttoERASEALLmydatausingthePSID <your PSID> /dev/nvme0n1

Note that above commands refer to NVMe drive.  If you have SATA drive instead, use /dev/sda instead of /dev/nvme0n1
