I recently purchased a Hitachi 7k60 for my IBM T41 online and found out that it was password protected with both User and Master passwords. After contacting the seller and learning the User password I am able to access the disk 100% but I can't disable the password protection without knowing the Master password (not through the conventional BIOS settings anyway). I've looked on the forum and only found questions relating to how to crack a hard drive where you have no access. I would like to know how to find the Master password when I already KNOW the user password. If anyone has any advice on how to do this please let me know. Thanks!
