Hi Magnum,

Thanks for your reply, from what I understand it's pointless also just 
to think about it. So now I'm feeling a bit lost about what to do with 
the laptop of my friend.

This is what happened:

I tried the suggestions in the link but none of them worked for me.

Then I tried Bitleaker

but it seems the BIOS of the laptop is too new, perhaps I could try to 
downgrade to the oldest available and retry, what 's your opinion?

Got a thread opened there too:

Honestly I don't know how to proceed and if there is a way to recover 
his data .................... :(

I really need some suggestions
