HP EliteBook 8730w bios reset

HP EliteBook 8730w
Microsoft Windows XP

Dear all,


please help me to remove my bios password, this was company laptop and now i can't boot from usb for installing newest OS.

At the moment installed Windows XP.

I've tried "HPBR" by mazzif, my model HP EliteBook 8730w doesn't exist in the list, but ProBook 8730w existed. I've tried to use this and Elitebook 8530w doesn't help.

Another possibility to use SMC.BIN file, but where i can get it?

HP support can send me this file?
