*DO NOT* set a BIOS HDD password on your X25-M G2

***Public Service Announcement***
Intel has informed me of a bug in the X25-M G2 shipping firmware (02G2). This
bug is specific to setting a hard drive password in your BIOS. If you
have set a BIOS HDD password, then subsequently change or disable that
password, the SSD may become inoperable. Intel is correcting the issue
in firmware and will be posting a fix shortly. In summary:
- DO NOT set a BIOS HDD password on an X25-M G2.
- If you already have, DO NOT CHANGE OR DISABLE the BIOS HDD password.
It will be safe to do either of the above once the X25-M G2 is flashed to a newer firmware to be released by Intel shortly. Firmware, when available, can be reached by this not-yet-live link.
