Hello all,

As the title suggests, while in my BIOS after updating my processor i noticed the Secure Erase+ option available and used it on my WD Blue thinking it would only format the drive so I could have a fresh install of windows. However, after doing so, I can't get either of my rigs to pick the drive up in the BIOS or in windows disk management. From the searching I've already done into the issue it seems that the disk likely isn't bricked, just locked. However, every fix I've found also utilizes Linux and I'd like to see if anyone here knows how I'd be able to force unlock it or at least get it to read through windows.

Thank you kindly.
