Anyone have a fix? Tons of searching only brings up TreatAsInternalPort under storahci, no solutions for NVMe.

I don't like the drives showing up in the safely remove hardware menu, but more importantly they are using Bitlocker To Go on them, which do not automatically unlock at boot, only at user login.

I hope setting up automatic unlock while running as System will work, but won't have a chance to test until I get back in town and have physical access.
