HP ProBook 4330s Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 11

Hello,

I hope the title of my message is explicit enough.

As a matter of fact, I own an old but nice HP ProBook 4330s with 6 Gb of RAM and a 1 Tb HDD that currently runs perfectly Windows 11 (as well as Linuxmint 20.3 via a dual boot with grub).

On Windows 11 (yes Windows 11 runs perfectly without the TPM2😋), I've successfully installed the Windows Certified Driver for the finger print device (from Validity Sensor Inc, version #4.4.228.0 date 2012-07-19) but I don't know what software to use to make it available at boot time as an option like the usual password or pin or image recognition.

Any help would be truly appreciated.

Best regards.😘

PS: don't hesitate to contact me by e-mail to learn how to install Windows 11 on old systems that are supposed to not support it.😜

Hi:

 

See if the HP client security manager software works to enroll your fingerprint...

 

HP Client Security Manager provides enhanced Windows login and website single-sign-on capabilities. Security Manager is also the host for HP Client Security plugins, and therefore should be installed before other Client Security modules. This package is provided for supported computer models running a supported operating system.

There is no way easier than this to bypass the W11 requirements on any PC that is running W10.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your post as well as your usefull links.

I've installed the Client Security toll but it does not recognise the finger sensor even if it driver is installed.

Same thing for the camera.

So, I still can't use the finger print.

Any idea ?

BTW, I didn't know your tool to install Windows 11 on old PCs, and I'll try it.

However, the method I use is simply to add a key in the registry with 4 dword32 and it works on any old system whatever the file system in use (GPT or MBR).

Here is the trick to upgrade from W10 or to make a fresh install (when you boot on the iso USB key or DVD):

-------------------

In the Windows 11 setup program
Select the edition of your choice and folow the instructions.
When you receive the message saying your computer can't install Window:

- Hit SHIFT + F10 to open the command prompt;
- Type regedit.exe to launch the registry editor;
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/Setup;
- Create a new key named LabConfig with a right click;
- Right click on LabConfig;
- Select the option New / DWORD (32-bit);
- Create four values: BypassCPUCheck, BypassRAMCheck, BypassTPMCheck and BypassSecureBootCheck;
- Modify the value 0 to 1 to each;
- Create a new key named MoSetup;
- Right click on MoSetup;
- Select the option New / DWORD (32-bit);
- Create a value: AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU;
- Modify the value 0 to1;
- Press Enter;
- Close the registry editor;

- Close the command prompt;
- Go back to the Windows Installation;
- Be sure to be on the screen where the error message is displayed;
- Click on the Previous arrow button;
- Once again, accept the utilisation use condition;
- Select the advanced installation option;
- Choose the installation partition;
- Click on the button Next;
- Windows 11 will install;

-------------------

I've installed Windows 11 on more than 20 old PCs with this method and it works.

Best regards.

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, there are a few ways to bypass the W11 hardware checks.

 

What is nice about the info on the link I posted is that you can do an in-place upgrade to W11 on any PC.

 

No need for a clean install, registry entries, or even to create bootable installation media.

 

Back to the fingerprint sensor not being able to be used...

 

The only other suggestion I can offer would be to uninstall the HP client security manager software since it didn't work and install the latest HP Simplepass fingerprint reader software and see if that works instead.

 

8.01.92

 

This package contains the HP SimplePass Identity Protection Software for the supported notebook models and operating systems. This software protects identity information and account access using the computer owner's fingerprint.

For the webcam, see if the W10 Universal webcam driver from the HP 4340s also works on your model...

 

10.0.0.30

 

This package contains an HP Universal Camera Driver to support the integrated webcams for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system.
