I work in a hospital and we use DBAN to wipe our hard drives when they come out of machines. We wiped a few laptop sata drives and just tried to repurpose them and they all have "passwords" on them. There were no passwords prior to wiping.

We are prompted for a password after the BIOS posts but before windows loads. If we drop them in a hard drive dock once windows has loaded, disk management tries to initalize them but then comes up with an error "The device is not ready."

We don't have this issue with desktop drives (IDE or SATA).

And ideas?

Thanks for the great product!
