I have a new Samsung 850 Evo and would like to do a clean install. This time, I want full drive encryption enabled. So reading through the options, the most obvious one was: enable a hdd password in the bios / uefi and according to Samsung this would enable AES-256 encryption.
So I went into the bios of my Asus P8Z77-V Pro and set a admin and user password and installed windows. However when I then (on the same machine) booted a live debian and mounted the new SSD (read-only) I could access all the folders in "clear-text". So what went wrong there?
How can I check that my motherboard supports the necessary feature? (its not THAT old, so I think it should be able to do it).
What alternatives are there (ideally so that when I need to attach the drive to another system to rescue data it should work out of the box, i.e. without having to install bitlocker on unix or something..)
