Re: Lenovo thinkpad X270 Power on password

Dear customer.

First of all, BIOS Power On Password and Windows password is not the same one.

However, when you use Fingerprint reader on both BIOS and Widows sign in, that will allow you to enter Windows by reading Fingerprint at BIOS POST.

The screen capture you posted tells me that you had once removed coin-cell battery to clear the BIOS Power On Password.

It seems to me the BIOS Power on Password was already removed but you need to use Fingerprint to log on to Windows.
