I'd like to have the computer only boot with an authorized fingerprint. Only way I seem to be able to trigger the fingerprint requirement is by adding a password in the bios at POST. Problem is, this requires a fingerprint, then I have to type the password. Is there any way to have fingerprint authorization at POST, without the typing?

Not exactly. I want the computer to require a fingerprint to boot, but not require any additional typed passwords.
Currently, with the computer turned off, I can swipe my finger and it will turn on and boot like normal. Windows accepts the previous fingerprint swipe in place of a logon password, and boots to the desktop.
Alternatively, with the computer turned off, if I press the power button, the computer will post and boot to windows, and then ask for a fingerprint or password.
The only way I seem to be able to force the computer to not boot without a fingerprint, requires setting a bios password, which I have to type after I swipe my finger. I don't want to have to type anything.
