|Configuring the SafeGuard Power-on Authentication / Keyboard layout|
The SafeGuard Power-on Authentication keyboard layout, including the virtual keyboard layout, can be changed retrospectively.
The SafeGuard POA remembers the keyboard layout used for the last successful logon and automatically enables it for the next logon. This requires two restarts of the endpoint. If the remembered keyboard layout is deactivated in Regional and Language Options, it is still used until the user selects a different one.
If the language you want is not available on the endpoint, Windows may prompt you to install it. After you have done so, you must restart the endpoint twice so that the SafeGuard Power-on Authentication can read in the new keyboard layout and can set it.
You can change the required keyboard layout for the SafeGuard Power-on Authentication using the mouse or keyboard (Alt+Shift).
To see which languages are installed and available on the system, select Start > Run > regedit > HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload.
