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.
