Intel anti theft system locked my notebook - data rescue

Hello, I have an Sony Vaio SVS 13, which I bought 2018. Now my notebook has been locked by the McAfee Software. It is a second hand notebook und bevor blocking I didn't know anything about this anti theft system. So I don't have the password to unlock the notbook (1 2 3 4 5 6 or 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 don't work) and also I do not have the Anti-Theft Account for the the webconsole. So the solutions in Document ID: TS101587 can't help me. But I need the data of my hard drive. My question is, can I remove my HDD to get my files back? Or is the hard drive also locked?

Please help me.

Thank you in advance

Thank you for your link. But without the password or an account, the removal tools don't help me.

Mary, this is really spam.  I have flagged it as  such.
