I've always bought Intel branded motherboards. A big reason is because they always support "HDD Password" feature. Plus I got great, reliable performance from Intel boards and never saw a need to go elsewhere.
Now that Intel is not going to be making motherboards anymore
Does anyone know any quality brands that support "HDD Password"? I talked with Asus tech support and was told their boards do not support HDD Password (or at least none of the literature talks about it and the guy I talked to didn't think they do). I use Linux and have been told by numerous people that Gigabyte is hostile to Linux, so I don't want to support them.
Any quality brands that support HDD Password that I can switch to for my next Motherboard when Intel is no longer available?
