That I couldn't get the poking HW encryption working on my Samsung 850 EVO then.
The steps Samsung suggest you need to go through, like pulling out certain cables while standing on one leg in a vat of cold porridge were clearly written by someone who'd never seen an M.2 device.

There has to be a way for the system to access the disk before getting the password since normally with bitlocker W10 boots first and asks for the password later.
