I had the Hard Drive Password Frozen problem on a Toshiba A200-EZ2205. Was rebuilding it for a customer, XP would not see hard drive to install, I change to new HD, same problem, formatted externally, all that stuff. So far the way I got around it is to Install Windows ME, it took, now to upgrade to XP............of course I don't have much hair left after that.
