Corsair Nova SSD Compatibility with HDD Password Security


spartan1

Recommended Posts

I just switched from the original HDD to a Nova 32GB SSD in my Acer Aspire AS1410-2285. I was using the BIOS HDD password with no problem with the original HDD, but now with the Nova SSD the password function will not work. The BIOS allows me to enable HDD password security and enter a password but after saving and exiting BIOS the HDD password function is disabled. I appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.

That feature may not work on all HDD's or SSD's.

The MB BIOS and HDD both would have to support that feature.

 

In addition, some NB's will provide a hidden partition on the drive prior to install for this and other features. You might check your old drive with FDISK using DOS and see if there is another partition on the old HDD. If so there may be an DOS or BIOS app that needs to be ran prior to the O.S. install.
