This policy setting allows users to enable authentication options that require user input from the pre-boot environment even if the platform indicates lack of pre-boot input capability.The Windows on-screen touch keyboard (such as used by slates) is not available in the pre-boot environment where BitLocker requires additional information such as a PIN or Password.It is recommended that administrators enable this policy only for devices that are verified to have an alternative means of pre-boot input (such as by attaching a USB keyboard).Note that if this option is not enabled, options in the Require additional authentication at startup policy may not be available on such devices. These options include:- Configure TPM startup PIN: Required\/Allowed- Configure TPM startup key and PIN: Required\/Allowed- Configure use of passwords for operating system drives.
