Ok thanks for your replies, I will check my boot options later, I mean i am backing up my computer right now so cant restart it. So for I have another question; assuming that the solutions you guys have provided the WD HD has no more issues of making the PC stuck, please tell me how to go about the ‘WD Unlocker’ if i want to restore my data from a backup that I have placed on my WD HD?
I mean let’s say I have backed up my data on the WD HD either my Acronis True Image or Windows Imgae Creating option and I have also done one out of the following:
Either have created a System Repair Disc from Windows (the one that let you boot from if your computer has crashed and let you perform system repair or restore your data from a backup placed on an external HD).
I have activated the ‘Acronis Startup Recovery Manager’ i.e. it would allow me to hit F11, take me to Acronis just as I boot so that I can restore my data from an external HD like the WD passort essentials.
Now the questions is that once I am inside Acronis Startup Recovery Manager before booting into windows and want to browse for a backup placed on the WD HD, surely it would not show up in Acronis as the WD HD is still LOCKED, so how to unlock it then? i mean without booting into wndows.
I have only 2 options in my mind for this;
1-Either move the backup to another external HD that doesnot have the ‘Locking’ thing on it.
2-Somehow disable WD HD’s lock permenantly.
