An ex employee has put a HDD lock on one of our ThinkPads, he says he forgets (won't tell us) the p/w, we think if we low level format the drive it will fix our dilema but we need to know how to get over the boot problem asking for the p/w, is there a key sequence to boot straight from floppy? the current boot sequence is FDD-CD-HDD and we don't care about data because we have all sales and info on our office system anyway. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
