I have a X201 with a Intel 320 SSD drive that I have used for the last two years. I want to improve the security on my computer and figured I would start by setting a hard drive password. From what I can gather from the Intel site, the 320 series SSD already encrypts all the data - just enabling a password is all that is necessary to complete the security.
I go into the BIOS, and have attempted to enter a hard drive password - user only. I type the password in twice, hit enter, then there is a delay where the hard drive is spinning, and when complete the hard drive password still says "Disabled". Note I have tried this with and without passphrase enabled, there is not supervisor password, no master password, etc.
Also not that I can set a power-on password with no problem.
What am I doing wrong? What could cause the act of setting a brand new password to fail?

Password problems on the T & X series machines with non-Lenovo approved encrypted drives seem to be feature.
