Yes, you can set a password in the BIOS and as soon as you turn the computer
on, you will need to enter this password before anything can load. See the
following website for instructions.

Hello,

I don't know if it's that what you mean:
Windows-key + R -> syskey -> click Update -> Password Startup

Hope this will help.
Greetings,
