Samsung 990 Pro Reset Hardware Encryption/or Bricked Drive?

(Topic created on: 3 weeks ago)

I've been experimenting with enabling hardware encryption on a Dell laptop for a Samsung 990 Pro and after a lot of trial and error I finally got it working.

But somewhere along the line I think I may have bricked the drive as I reset the BIOS and cleared the TPM which will have been holding the key as I was trying to setup a 2nd 990 Pro with hardware encryption.

If a try to secure erase the drive it fails, if I load the drive in to another machine and try to use Magician to do anything on the drive it tells me it's "Not Supported".

So I can't see anyway to recover the drive, the data on it is irrelevant and can be lost, so have I managed to brick the drive, or is there another way to clear it?

Thanks in advance.

Resolved. I needed to disable "SED Block SID Auth" in the BIOS, once I'd done this I was able to use PSID Revert to restore the drive.
