comment hard drive Password setup in BIOS - How to use?
The ATA based hard drive password doesn't encrypt the data on the drive in any way, and is trivial to defeat. What's the point of changing a setting that will then require time and effort to enter a password on every boot if there is only a very minimal and trivial amount of protection added? It's an inconvenience for almost no benefit. See notable sources such as: schneier.com/blog/archives/2006/05/man_sues_compaq.html
