View Full Version : Running Ubuntu on SSD with native hardware encryption enabled to work for 'eDrive'

August 8th, 2015, 10:36 AM
I have Samsung 850 Evo. If I do a secure erase and then fresh install the Windows 10 (to enable the BitLocker to work with SSD's hardware encryption), will I able to install and use Ubuntu on it later?

850 Evo uses encryption in three ways:
Class 0 - ATA BIOS password setup
TG Opal - with third-party softwares
Encrypted Drive - to use with OS which supports "encrypted drive"
