Fix MateBook X Pro Fingerprint Reader After Windows Reinstall

PSA: Please take this MXP user survey about issues and mods!

The Problem

When setting up Windows Hello, you can’t get past the first prompt to touch the fingerprint sensor.

The Solution

The following drivers need to be installed in this order:

  1. Intel Chipset
  2. Intel Serial IO
  3. Intel ME
  4. Intel SGX
  5. Fingerprint

You can download these drivers from Huawei’s website.

Hey Brad,
Thank you for posting this thread!

Since Huawei only allows to install drivers through Huawei Device Manager now, I have a problem to install these recommended drivers in given order. Can you please help me to solve this issue?

Yes agree with you about the warranty, don’t think it will be void after reinstalling Windows.
Anyways I decided to try and just bought it, now I have to change the language from Chinese to English, do you mind sharing how you did that?
Thanks,

Also this approach brought in Hardware Check, which was missing before in Huawei’s PC-Manager after Windows 10 clean install.
