I solved it by contacting HP world wide chat. They provided me with a file to restore the BIOS in it's default state. It worked.

The Elitebook is a business class machine with tighter security than consumer class machines.If the seller can't give it to you- only official HP Tech Support can help you-with proof of ownership.
