My System Specs

software level won't help me in this case. I'm not trying to lock files, I need to lock the hole drive into read-only at a hardware level so that if I boot from a live OS whether WinPE or linux, etc, I can't wipe the partition on the drive

A USB card ready could work, but it seems like a backwards way of doing things. I dunno, I'm really picky when it comes to getting what I want. It's 2013, we have the technology, but it seems there's always a compromise

and as mentioned, finding newer, large capacity keys with hardware locks is near impossible, finding a drive with encryption is no problem on the other hand, but I don't want encryption for a multiboot key
