Lenovo FW has additional protection, I don't think free tools would serve much help

I think that i can unlock it for you.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/ATA-Password-U ... 2861542747

If i can't unlock it i will refund your $$$ but most likely it's easy to unlock even if it's from a Lenovo ...

You might need to get "normal" main ROM code and move all CPs from your ROM to the "unlocked" ROM if special "Lenovo" ROM main code is preventing the use of VSCs. Then you need to send the VSC to regen the "S" sector on platter or as alternative read/write that sector by PBA...

No free sollution. Most likely there will never be a free sollution for this unless the VSC that is used to regen "S" somehow does work on your drive even with "Lenovo" firmware ....

NO.

The password is NOT on the ROM. It's stored on the "security" or "S" "sector" on the platters.

You need either to use a VSC (vendor specific command) to re-gen that "S" sector to a default one (unlocked) or you need to access that sector by PBA (using of course vendor specific commands) and replace that sector with one of an un-locked drive ...

There are some drives that don't behave like that ... Meaning on some drives with "patched" or "special" main code terminal will be locked and S-ON will not work or if it does work all other VSCs are blocked ....

I did saw this mainly with DVR locked drives ... You can't even read ROM by terminal, access CPs by VSC, etc ...

You do need to read ROM with extrenal programmer, carve the CPs and write those to ROM with normal main code, then you can use VSC to re-create "S" or read/write "S" by VSC ...

Yes, if you do know some sort of VSC or if you have a way to unlock terminal, etc ...

At any rate this doesn't help the OP with anything ..

Maybe you should PM him the VSCs to unlock the drive ?

This is what i think as well, like on DVR Locked Toshiba, SUPER ON doesn't work so any other "super" command will be rejected.
