I installed Intel ssd 520 (180GB) into my HP 8560w notebook with Windows 8.1. The system works fine, if no HDD ATA password set. However I wish to take advantage of the encryption feature, so I have set an ATA master and user password (in the BIOS). Problem is that setting the ATA password causes the system to blue screen (STOP 0xF4) when waking from a sleep state.
Event viewer shows Error Event 41-Kernel power (critical), "system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first". It seems, like the SSD remains locked after resuming from SLEEP. In order to figure it out, I disabled ATA password for Intel SSD, using password just for my secondary HDD (Hitachi magnetic non encrypting drive) in upgrade bay. This works fine, notebook is able to resume from SLEEP, secondary drive is unlocked and available. So it seems, that it is intel ssd to cause the problems, not the bios. Is there any solution? There is similar post in the intel forum, but without any reasonable solution. https://communities.intel.com/message/168612
I run Windows 8.1 x64, latest updates, latest bios, latest 520 firmware (i400). SATA in AHCI mode. Thanks
