    Recently had this problem and only found 1 answer which took 3 hours
    to find and was in french, so thought be handy to post it here.

    use partedit32.exe can be found here with instructions
    http://laptop-support.net

    follow there instructions to unhide the partition. i found that
    putting hardrive into another pc worked as somehow the bios on the
    laptop kept hiding the partition even when this was disabled in the
    bios.

    once you can see the partition in XP or whatever OS you using, search
    that partition for a file called aimdrs.dat. open this file with
    notepad and there will be your password.
