In order to unlock the Windows drive, turn off your computer and remove the power cable. After that, unplug the hard drive from the motherboard, wait several seconds and plug it in again. If it doesn't help and if you're using an Intel computer, try updating the storage drivers using Intel Driver Update Utility. If it doesn't help, check the Microsoft forum for further solutions.
