I am very new to this forum, but thought I might get some insight on here.
My grandpa gave me his old T60(Lenovo/IBM). Someone had already flashed Win8 on it, so I decided to just upgrade it to 10.
Well, after doing a fresh install, I can’t seem to get many of the drivers to work or install. The main one I’m concerned about is the Fingerprint Reader.
In Device Manager, it shows up as “Biometric Coprocessor,” and when I try to install the Fingerprint Manager, it gives me an error saying “Windows Biometric Framework is not enabled.” I already tried editing the group policy, and I unplugged the unit itself and plugged it back in in hopes that Windows would register it. It didn’t.
If anyone has any advice or help, please let me know

If you are using 32 bit Windows 10, this should be the one that works: https://think.lenovo.com.cn/support/dri ... 6osid%3D33
At least I tried that on a Dell Latitude with the same Touchchip scanner and it worked fine
If you are using 64 bit Windows 10, Windows update catelog also has a standalone driver that is much easier to deal with:

This is just the driver, Windows Hello takes care of the rest
600 PII-266 416mb 40gb WXP
T23 PIII 1.13ghz 1gb W7
Precision M4300 X9000 8gb 160gb WUXGA Ultrasharp fp W10
T530i 15.6" i7 16gb fp W10
A30p PIII 1.2 1gb W7 (IDTech)
T43p 2.26 2gb fp W10 (Sharp)
Lat C840 P4-2.5 2gb 60gb W7 (Ultrasharp)
Eventhough you said it's a fresh install , i would run an sfc & dism on that system to try to identify if there are any corrupted files with the installation. Once done , run a windows update. I have seen success with Win7/8 drivers running in compatibility mode , check this ,

If they dont work , check win10 drivers , here
Since you had a go at regedit , check these steps to make sure you haven;t missed anything.
I am sure you are aware ,Win10 will not enable biometric sign in unless you assign a password to your login account. And to make sure this is not account specific , i would create a dummy "admin"account and check windows hello settings from there.
