Solved BIOS does not have Num Lock On option Gigabyte Z97

Custom built pc / Ga-z97x-ud3h

Specs: Windows 7 64bit, i5-4690K
Back with my old Gateway 2000 (Win95) I had to go into BIOS to set the keyboard Number Lock to go on automatically. Since then Windows 98 through Windows 7 GA-P43-UD3 motherboard, it has always been set already to turn on the Num Lock automatically, but if needed, the setting was always in the BIOS where I could find it if needed. Now on my new build with the Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H motherboard F7 BIOS, the Number lock is not on unless I turn it on and I cannot find a way in the BIOS or in Windows to preset this. This is annoying since I include numbers in my passwords so when I boot up, I fail to log on until I remember to tap the Num Lock button. NOT earth shattering a problem, just Annoying!
Is there any chance that anyone who has this motherboard or similar has found this setting or a way around it?
PS 4690K but not OC yet.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Thank You, that did it.
The first part did not help since I had already disabled Fast Start due to SSD as a boot drive on the new machine, but the registry edit did the job, just changing the value from the default one to 2 was all that was needed. Thank You very much.
