Hardware encryption on SSD

Recommended Posts

I have succeeded in installing macOS Sierra on my E7450 and it is all working quite nicely, although I do have the odd issue with the keyboard layout which doesn't bother me too much. One thing that I would very much like to get working is encryption, which I hoped would work with my Samsung 840 EVO self encrypting drive. Unfortunately, while this works fine with both Windows and Linux, on macOS, if I set an ATA password for the drive, the system becomes unresponsive after sleeping. I guess it either does not put the drive in the correct mode when sleeping, or fails to initialise it in the correct way after sleep. Whilst I do not have the expertise to fix the problem myself, I am wondering if anyone has managed to get hardware encryption working, and if so which SSD are you using, and were any additional steps need to be taken to ensure it works correctly? Thanks in advance.
