    Format Encrypted Drive

    memnoch2040

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to format and reimage a drive that was previously encrypted.  I have tried several tools such as DBAN and Kill Disk but they fail.  Booting into DETech PE and trying to launch EETech gives a version mismatch error saying McAfee Drive Encryption Version is 86.118.  I am not able to retrieve disk information.  Hardware diagnostics all pass.  Trying to boot the drive gives Fatal Error: OxEF000008 Failed to load cryptographic module.  Drive model is HTS725032A7E635 Opal.  Is there a way to unlock this drive to make it useable again?  I'm not worried about getting any existing data back.


      Thanks
