HD password in Bios stay "Not installed"

Hello,

I use a SSD 520 series with a MB DQ77MK .

When I set a Hard Disk Drive password in the bios (0056), the status stay "not installed". I make the same with User password and I get "installed".

I buy a platform Vpro only for this. Does I miss something ?

Regards, Vanilla.

Hi Vanilla,

You might try BIOS 0057. Also, if you are using the graphical BIOS interface try switching to the 'classic' mode.

Thanks.

Hello Ken,

Now I have version 0057 and nothing new. I do not install visual bios, always classic mode.

Regards, Vanilla.

Hi Vanilla,

I finally have a 77MK board to test with. I'll try to recreate this tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find.

Hi Vanilla,

I was able to set a HDD password on my system, but it only works if you go into BIOS immediately after a cold boot. Trying to set the password after a Restart from Windows does not work. Trying to set the password after a Shutdown from Windows does work.

I will report this behavior to our BIOS team.

Let me know if you continue to have problems.

I should also mention that on my system I did not receive a proper "Please enter hard disk password" prompt after I set the password. They system would simply halt the POST process with a steady cursor in the upper left corner of the screen.

Hello Ken,

I wonder how you discover the subtilty of "cold BIOS". It works. Big thanks.

I notice when my pc is not running ( shut down and only plug ), the three diods of the keyboard are flashing ( 20 seconds interval ). Is it a particularity of this DQ77MK ?

Hi Vanilla,

I just stumbled onto the 'cold boot' aspect of the problem. I noticed that it worked sometimes, but not others and finally figured out that it only worked on a cold boot.

I don't see the same LED behavior on my keyboard. I checked some other forum's and other people who have seen blinking keyboard LED's have narrowed down to either the brand of keyboard or to an actual problem with the keyboard.
