I'm hoping to build a new desktop system which I can use with the Intel 320 SSD's encryption features. I can't find any motherboards which categorically state that they support HDD passwords, but I know that some Intel desktop boards do.
I've been looking at the DZ77GA-70K and would like to set an HDD password in ACHI mode so I can make the most of the SSD encryption.
Has anyone done this on the DZ77GA-70K and does it work?
Here is a suggestion for you. Got to the Intel site and enter the DZ77GA-70K and look at the Bios Updates they show for that Mobo or any other one. The sometimes do a write up with this type of information in it. look there.
See if the spec. fot the board have anything there.
I took a look at the latest BIOS updates PDF and there is a mention of password support being added to the Visual BIOS... However, I've heard reports in other threads that it may not support passwords in ACHI mode.
If there is anyone with this board that could check (or an Intel rep can confirm?), that would be a big help.
