I bought the 6TB 4x4K ReadyView system, after about 7 months of trouble, back and forth with their technical support I gave up on it ever working correctly. A few months back I found an alternative from Camect.com which is infinitely better, I’ve been able to move the cameras over to the Camect solution, but I would also like to re-use the 6TB Purple HDD from the ReadyView system in my PC.
However, when putting it into a PC the drive either stalls the PC’s boot up sequence, just completely hanging the PC when using one of the SATA ports in AHCI mode, or if I attach it to a Intel chipset controlled RST ports of my desktop PC, which is a bit more sophisticated, it informs me that the drive is “Locked” this seems like a BIOS based lock.
Is anyone aware of any solution to unlock the drive to use it on a PC? I totally expect to format the drive, so I don’t need the data on the drive.
