Intel anti theft system locked my notebook - data rescue

Hello, I have an Sony Vaio SVS 13, which I bought 2018. Now my notebook has been locked by the McAfee Software. It is a second hand notebook und bevor blocking I didn't know anything about this anti theft system. So I don't have the password to unlock the notbook (1 2 3 4 5 6 or 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 don't work) and also I do not have the Anti-Theft Account for the the webconsole. So the solutions in Document ID: TS101587 can't help me. But I need the data of my hard drive. My question is, can I remove my HDD to get my files back? Or is the hard drive also locked?

Please help me.

Thank you for your reply. But your link refers to the document which I mentioned in my post and which could not help me any further. My question is whether anyone knows whether the hard drive is also affected by the lock and is therefore unusable.
