there is a way to encrypt ssd drive (steal protection) in this notebook with Windows 10 Home ?
Or only works with Windows 10 Pro ?
Or there is another way to protect hard drive in case of steal ?
EDIT : Like my previous post I think that i solved this by set bios hdd password.
But i didn't found how exactly hdd password works. Is it locked in ssd firmware so if someone steal laptop, put off ssd a want to read a data - it will be locked ?
Or how exactly hdd password works ?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
You can use BitLocker to encrypt SSD. Details here, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/bitlocker/bitlocker-device-.... Alternatively, there are 3rd party software that lets you do it like VeraCrypt tool. Please note that using these methods will not be covered by the warranty.

I read some posts about not clear informations about password requirements. So is there a lenght limitation or allowed characters ?
I read that someone use a longer password in bios settings but startup password field only get a e.g. 8 character lenght a he didn't get to his laptop.
