@Nemix77 & @ DocBrown that is what I'm exactly talking about, that hidden partition though was removed long ago, but as I have been messing around with my wife's laptop which in the bios it says the drive is (frozen), but with cmos wiping software I was able to unlock the drive. When you prepare the drive though and reboot it changes back to frozen. I don't know the exact answer why but one reason is the software that is installed on the hard drive by absolute software
which is basically a low-jack component
on laptops and commercial built computers
. This software is located in the master boot record
itself and cannot be removed this is the component I don't like about laptops and store bought machines, I only will build computers from components myself so I don't have that problem. That's why I want the hard drive unfrozen so I can remove this low-jack
component. I don't need it and don't want it, it is just another way to intrude on privacy. On you laptop type "msconfig" in the run menu and select the services tab and hide all "microsoft services" by checking the box. If you have "Absolute Software" installed then you can be located anywhere just because of that, and I don't really need to be found.
Anyway if your laptop gets stolen "so what" by the time they find it for you it will be most likely unusable to you anyhow.
I just believe it's the path of losing more of our freedoms and being watch over by Big Brother
who isn't a brother at all...
