X1E second drive encryption

If the boot drive encyrption on an X1E 9and any Thinkpad I guess) is enabled using a bios HDD password, how is hardware encyption handled on a second NVMe drive (in this case a Samsing 970 Evo)? Will the bios password also encrypt that drive, too, or is some other configuration needed?

Re: X1E second drive encryption

The BIOS passwords are configured separately.  With 2 drives installed, you will see passwords for NVMe #1 and NVMe #2 in BIOS setup.  You can make these passwords the same, or different.
