I have a friend who's laptop was stolen, and before they got it back the password on their BIOS was set to something unkn own. Now they cannot access their laptop. If the password for the BIOS is set, is there a way to bypass it? Can the drive be mounted as a slave on another machine and read then or will it still be password protected? Is it possible to format the drive completely including the BIOS in order to reset the password?
