HGST SED HUC101812CSS201 drive locked! need help please


Hi, I bought 48 HGST drives to use in a few storage units with plans to reformat them. IBM/ HGST, HGST model: HUC101812CSS201

But it looks like the drives are SED and locked.We have tried these SED util steps without success: https://github.com/Drive-Trust-Alliance/sedutil

We even tried Blancco Crypto Erase, which failed.

Does anyone have advice for unlocking? We obviously do not need to keep any data that might be on the drive.
