    No Reset W10 Drive is locked

    After "playing" and messing up my W10 installation I decided the best way forward was a reset, although my drive shows two recovery partitions, they seem to be empty, so I booted from USB to recover, however I received I message that my disk drive was locked!!
    How, where, when, and how is it unlocked; I look forward to the responses.
