    Hello, i recently had an issue with an HP 2000 Laptop, it was booting to recovery (rapair mode) and then would fail and restart, i pulled the Harddrive and plugged it into a desktop and booted UBCD, and ran seatools.

    however shortly after beginning the long test i seen that it came up that "this drive is security freeze locked"

    ive spent about 2 hours googling what this meant if it may be whats causing the boot issues, but nothing online that i can find tells me what it is or what it means.

    some sources said it had something to do with the bios but, as ive stated above the drive was pulled and plugged into a desktop, so a different Bios, which its own harddrive doesnt get the same message, or any other harddrive i hook up to it.

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
