    Default Tutorial : How to use fingerprint security from BIOS

    Friends,

    I saw many people asking how to enable the fingerprint security from BIOS, so before windows loads, it asks to swipe the finger. With a little R&D, I managed to find the exact way to do it

    I am using a VAIO SZ430N/B and I have formatted and did a clean install of vista ultimate.

    Now I am presuming that you all have installed the Protector Suite QL and enrolled your finger prints in it. So here is the process to get it enabled on the chip

    Step 1

    Right click on Protector Suite QL on taskbar and select "Start Control Center"



    Step 2

    Click on enroll or edit....... and select "Delete"

    Step 5

    Restart the laptop & select F2 to go in BIOS
    Then go to Security option, and set a machine password
    Make sure that Password when power on is Enabled
    Then select clear Fingerprint data




    Step 6

    It will give a warning to clear the data, select continue, after that the machine will restart automatically.

    Step 10

    It will ask you to enable power-on........select YES
    After that enroll your fingerprints in the software. I did for both the index fingers.

    You will get this pop-up now

    In the next screen you will find that above the fingerprints your saved earlier, you will see a blank box which can be enabled.

    Step 17

    Now you will see the words "Boot" written above the enrolled fingerprints. Which means that next time you start the machine, it will ask you to swipe the fingerprint & then only the machine will boot the OS.

    Also it wont ask you again to swipe while loading windows

    Important:

    don't forget to enable the admin privileges for user everytime you use the Protector Suite QL control center. The option is at the bottom of the window.
