EliteBook 8470p BIOS Password Reset

HP Recommended
EliteBook 8470p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I recently got an EliteBook 8470p, but upon entering the BIOS there was a password in place, under the name 'BIOS Administrator'. I tried using the HP SpareKey Recovery Tool, but it just says it's not enrolled. Is there a master password or some kind of application to remove/change the password? Or am I stuck?
