Unlocking any TP with KM9AUSB and also KM9AUSBPRO

KeyMaker 9A USB and KeyMaker 9A USB PRO can deal with the Supervisor Password (SVP) in two different ways.

  1. Stand Alone Mode

  2. Using a second PC or Laptop

Stand Alone Mode is the same for KM9AUSB and KM9AUSBPRO

Stand Alone mode requires no second PC or Laptop, it will simply ZAP the SVP.

Using a second PC or Laptop can be useful sometimes to display what the SVP was, just in case the Hard Disk password was set to the same password, although that rarely happens in my experience.

Most times 2 separate passwords are used.

If the ThinkPad was purchased at Auction, the Hard Drive will most likely have been swapped from another password locked ThinkPad, in which case there is not the slightest chance that the recovered SVP will be of any use to unlock the Hard Disk.
