elitebook 8570w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I forgot the bios password so  I tried to find a way to reset.

 

1. HPBR   > 8570w model not supported.

 

2. smc.bin > HP center in my country doesn't provide the smc.bin file any more.

 

Where can i get the smc.bin file?

 

If there is a way generating smc.bin file by myself, it would be the best solution for me.

 

Would anybody can solve my annoying problem?
