I have a quite serious problem with the HP BIOS CONFIG UTILITY.
We use it to prepare our notebooks for a Bitlocker rollout and on some HP notebooks the setting of the BIOS password and the following configuration via a paramter file will fail.
Here´s the error message, produced by the latest HP BIOS CONFIGURATION UTILITY:
ERROR: <ERROR msg="Unable to decrypt password file: c:\test\aupassword.bin" />
Error during CryptAcquireContext. LastError = 0x <ERROR msg="BCU return v
alue" real="10" translated="10" />
...the error code 0x80090345 seems important, but I have no clue where to search and whom to blame... 🙂
Somehow the decryption of the password file fails. Needless to say that exactly this password file works on a the majority of our clients, but we have about 10% where it will fail.
BTW: If I try to create a new password file for testing with HPQPSWD.EXE, this will fail also on the affected machines.
As said - 90% working, 10% not at all...
Do you guys have any helpful ideas, hints - ideally a solution?
Thanks in advance,
