I have a T480 running Windows 10 - 1803
I use the fingerprint reader as my default logon.
It has been working flawlessly for the power-on, and hard drive password, but to log back into windows from the screen saver it was not working well. I went into Windows Hello deleted my fingerprint and re-enrolled it.
Unfortunately now when I do a cold boot my fingerprint unlocks the BIOS but will NOT work for unlocking the hard drive.
I have to manually type in my password to get past the hard drive "padlock".
Windows-Hello to reopen from screen-saver-lock works fine....
sigh....................... How do i get all three fingerprint unlocks sync'ed up? (Power-on, Hard Drive, and Windows)
Solved! Go to Solution.

I assume all 3 passwords are the same as each other. Before you add your password back into windows hello, boot into the BIOS and delete your fingerprints. (security/fingerprint/erase fingerprint data). Set up the fingerprints in windows hello. The first time you power on, it will prompt for power-on and hard drive pw.

I'm not sure what happened but.....
this morning after another cold start-up this morning it all appears to be sync-ed ....
If I have any more trouble I'll do exactly as you suggest and delete from BIOS and enter new data only in Windows-Hello!
