After encrypting a Lenovo T460s that has a Toshiba THNSFJ256GDNU A M.2 format SSD drive the computer will not load Windows.
After logging in at the Pre-Boot Authentication screen the computer hangs loading Windows.
The computer remains at the Windows logo with the spinning dots screen indefinitely.
No errors are ever thrown.

Other Lenovo T460s that have another brand of SSD drive load Windows without issue after encrypting.
