Lenovo X1 Tablet pre boot keyboard bitlocker

Hey there,

I'm just configuring my new X1 tablet and really want to use bitlocker with a pre boot passphrase. But I'm not sure if I can use the X1 keyboard during start up as pre boot keyboard.

Does anybody know? Don't want to try it out without the assurance that it is possible. Otherwise I might not be abe to recover my data.

best regards

I tried it.  X1 Tablet works fine with X1 physical keyboard.  During boot up phase, it will popup the onscreen soft keyboard as well.

Re: Lenovo X1 Tablet pre boot keyboard bitlocker



I have a X1 Tablet (20GHS1DM00) and there is no preboot OSK for unlocking Bitlocker. Turned "Enumerate Keyboard" and "On Screen Keyboard" in BIOS settings to "ON". What kind of settings did u make in the BIOS settings??


Best regards
