How to "Unlock disk"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So just a little background.

1. PCI SSD in laptop. Had strange issues with slowing down.
2. Found out it was malware, removed malware. Everything was fine again.
3. Windows started a few days later, couldn't finish "Automatic Repair" and goes directly to blue screen.
4. Removed from Laptop, plugged into external and trying to see if I can access anything. Not shown in windows.
5. Can't get into Windows at all, can't fix MBR, do chckdsk or error check. Disk
6. Disk part shows 0b
7. When plugged into the laptop and attempting to fix I get an error stating the "the drive is locked, needs to be unlocked."

Tried most solutions I've found online. Does anyone have any idea what to do to "Unlock" my drive so I can about actually boot back into my machine?

Have you tried using a windows repair disk and trying to repair the MBR or rebuild the bcd?

Yes. Every single thing won't run because "The disk in locked. Please unlock the disk to continue."

I can't bypass this at all.
