Now I know 980 Pro supports hardware encryption, but is it possible to do this at BIOS level (pre-OS boot)?
So far I could not find any options on my MOBO/BIOS.
I'm loaded into the OS now and the Magician app asks me to do a secure erase and clean install the OS to enable encryption.
What if I took a clonezilla backup (current disk image), did a secure erase, enabled encryption, and restored the image back onto the NVMe? Seeking advice from people who're using encryption on their drives.
