Thanks for joining the Desktop Board community.
I understand you are looking for BIOS features that can handle Security Freeze Lock.
Please bear in mind the motherboard does not offer BIOS settings to enable or disable Security Freeze Lock.
The workaround for this matter would be putting the drive to sleep or suspend to unfreeze it, or power cycle the SSD:

Thank you for the response.
I understand power cycling works, but that's quite unfeasible to do every boot. Are there any plans at Intel to address this issue, to allow users of Intel desktop boards the ability to use the full feature set of their Intel SSDs, without requiring third party FDE solutions?
What technical limitations are preventing an updated BIOS being released with the menu item for SECURITY FREEZE LOCK unhidden and able to be toggled?
Thanks for the information. I will move this thread to our SSD community.

Intel's firmware engineers suffer from [redacted] and other malaise. Setting the jumper on this mobo to maintenance, setting a password, and then setting jumper to normal will allow using hard drives with the password set.
