FDE preboot Smartcard/Token issues on Lenovo X200
||Harmony Disk and Media Encryption
- Normally, in order to enable Smartcard/Token support in FDE pre-boot, the following steps need to be performed:
- Disable USB legacy support in BIOS.
- Enable FDE USB support.
On Lenovo X200 (with USB disabled in BIOS and FDE USB support enabled) authentication with Aladdin Smartcard/Token works. However, Windows will not load.
Hardware where this has been seen:
- Lenovo X200 Bios version 1.10 (6DET33WW) 2008-10-27 and latest release
- Aladdin E-token 32k
- PKI 4.00(Aladdin middleware)
- FDE for Windows 7.0 HFA1
Handover of USB control from FDE to BIOS does not work properly, and for this reason Windows fails to load.
