No BIOS Option to Set a Hard Drive Password on M.2 SSD





Hard Drive Password

Systems with NVME (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SATA3 hard drives will support hard drive passwords with the SATA Operation BIOS setting Enabled. Should the SATA Operation BIOS setting be disabled (Figure 1, English only), the system will no longer have hard drive password support. This is working by design as the function is only supported with SATA Operation Enabled.

Note: NVME drives should still be usable with SATA operation disable, but there will be no BIOS password support in this mode.

NVME drives on PCIe Do Not support BIOS level hard drive passwords.
