Disable encryption

I prefer to use BitLocker on my Intel 525 SSD, but I cannot proceed since the drive is already encrypted using Intel's own encryption. Is there a way to disable Intel's encryption on the drive?

Thank you

Hi OM, I have some questions:

Did you try removing the hard drive password from the BIOS setup screen?

Are you trying to set up the drive as Microsoft* eDrive?

There's no hard drive password. Only a EFI (BIOS) password for unauthorized modification. Microsoft eDrive? No. I am simply trying to install Microsoft's BitLocker encryption on the SSD. It will not allow me because the drive is already encrypted by Intel.

Is it possible to provide a screenshot of the error message?

I figured it out. I was trying to save the BitLocker encryption text file to a USB that's already encrypted by BitLocker 2 Go. Thanks anyway.
