Windows 7: Setup TPM with Ubuntu or Win7? (and fingerprint scanner)

Setup TPM with Ubuntu or Win7? (and fingerprint scanner)

I have a dual boot system, Ubuntu 16.04 & win7 (I don't want win10)

I found this walk thru for a windows initialization/ownership of a TPM 1.2 and seemed pretty easy.

I should mention I want the TPM to do it's work upon startup only - I will NOT be using it in conjunction with bitlocker!

Now would it be better for me to set it up through Ubuntu or since it's so easy just do it through Win7?

Also, I want to add a usb fingerprint scanner to the initial startup with the TPM - does anyone know how I would set this feature within the TPM wizard so it sees & uses the fingerprint sensor for the initial startup?

From my understanding this should be the FIRST thing booting up, even prior to the SSDs correct?

Give us more hardware information.
Does your hardware has the TPM device?

Asrock x99m Extreme4
Intel 5820k
16gb memory
EVGA 970

Yes I have the TPM - it was sold separately and therefore not paired with my board - so I would still need to take ownership of it.

Any other info you need?

Thanks for the help.

Always give us all the info as possible and start with your hardware specs, what you want to achieve, and the problem you facing.
Sorry Grey, I've never deal with a TPM device before so I can't help, but there will be someone at the forum that can.

How can I remove fingerprint data from the scanner?
I recently reinstalled Windows, but I forgot to remove my enrolled fingerprints from the scanner first. Now I can't enroll those fingerprints in Windows because the scanner tells me they're already enrolled--even though they aren't tied to anything. Is there any way to clear them from the scanner...

Any software for using a fingerprint scanner?
I don't mean using it to log in -- I mean just using it to view fingerprints. My laptop has one of those built-in fingerprint scanners. I used to use it to log in, but I upgraded to Windows 7 once it came out and didn't bother to find the driver. I don't really want to use it to log in, but if I...
