Fingerprint & Password on Startup

[ Edited ]

I've got a weird issue with my X301 that's happening on startup (Windows 7 64-bit).

When I start up, I'm asked for my fingerprint (which I want), but am then asked for my password as well (which I don't want). It used to work with just the fingerprint scan needed once in order to start my computer and log in to Windows, but for some reason it has stopped working.


Using Lenovo Fingerprint Software with the following options all checked:

User fingerprint scan instead of password when logging into Windows

Require fingerprint scan for non-administrative users (I'm an admin anyway)

Enable Windows Password recovery

Use fingerprint scan instead of power-on and hard drive passwords.

Enable single sign-on capability

Always show power-on security options


Any suggestions?

Re: Fingerprint & Password on Startup

Nevermind...I got it.

I'm not sure if it's a new thing (installed with the newer version of the fingerprint software?) but I had missed a setting under the "User Privileges" tab in the fingerprint software. Once I checked off "Allow users to configure and select fingerprints for power-on security" everything worked well again.
