✔ Best Answer
It shouldn't all of a sudden be asking for a password. Is this the same drive in the same computer as when it wasn't asking for a password? And you're sure it's a hard drive password it's asking for?

Could someone have added a password without you knowing?

Could it be asking if you want to create a password instead? If so you may be able to turn that off in cmos/bios setup.

Please note that Upgrading to Windows 10 requires that you are logged in as administrator. If you normally use a normal user and keep the admin for important changes, this is one of them. With a normal installer just OKing the install with the admin password is enough and it appears to be at the beginning with the upgrade but it will fail unless you are fully logged in as admin. This might or might not be your problem but it is possible so I mention it here because it is important for those who use multiple log ins for safety.

If you do not use a password for logging in normally then there is no need to use one now. If you do not need a HD password normally then there is none installed.

Are you getting the Windows 10 upgrade from Windows Update or the official Microsoft Download site? Anything else is probably a scam and is possibly trying to get you to reveal important information or high level passwords you normally use to others.

If you are trying to get around a high level password on a stolen system by upgrading to another operating system, it is not going to work and we cannot help you with it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is this a hard drive password set in the bios or with something like microsoft's bitlocker?

Did you see if you can disable the hard drive password in bios setup?
