*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.
