I have HDD from my previous laptop with user password installed (the password which has to be entered to access hard disk)
I insert the HDD into my new EEE PC 900HA, turn it on, it asks me:
"Hard Disk locked, enter user password"
When I enter the correct password (I am 100% sure it is correct - I used to type it every day on my previous laptop) it is not accepted. I can try to enter it 3 times and then it says:
"Failed to unlock Hard Disk!"

There are no menu items in the BIOS Setup regarding HDD passwords which is very strange - I thought every laptop now would have option to set/change HDD password
