Fix MateBook X Pro Fingerprint Reader After Windows Reinstall

The Problem

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

The Solution

Download these drivers from Huawei’s website (in the ‘Others’ section) and install them in this order:

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

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?

Cheers,
Lazar

Worked for me as well – did a fresh install of the latest Win 10 ISO and my fingerprint sensor wouldn’t work regardless of having the latest drivers installed by Huawei’s PC Manager. Went through the list included here one by one and it worked. I did NOT reboot between… Read more »

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,
Dan

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

I had the same problem for my Huawei Matebook D i5. By downloading the same drives in that order also solved the problem for me. I just downloaded the driver for my model at: https://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/laptops/matebook-d/ Even though all the drivers were up to date, you still need to download them… Read more »

This didn’t work for me, but updating to the latest windows release did (build 4019 I think). When I booted in the newest version fingerprint worked and keyboard didn’t, but I disabled fingerprint, rebooted, then reenabled it and everything worked.

I did this twice already and nothing. Windows Hello keeps saying that my device isn’t compatible.
