On my HP ProBook laptop, by going in the BIOS options, I protected the Hard Drive by using HP's DriveLock technology. Every time that I turn on my laptop, a password is requested. If I move this hard drive (protected by DriveLock) to another computer of another brand (Asus), there is no prompt to enter a password and so I cannot access the content of the hard drive.
Is this due to the fact that the hard drive protected by DriveLock is unlockable only on my laptop? What if I will insert this hard drive on another HP laptop which supports DriveLock technology? Will it recognize the fact that there is this protection enabled on the HDD and will it ask for the password to unlock it?
To summarize: Is an HDD protected by HP's DriveLock only unlockable on HP computers which support this technology or only on the computer where DriveLock has been enabled?
