I would like to know what the jumper pins FDO, BB are used for, I know that PSWD means to clear and reset password.

FDO

 

The Flash Descriptor Override (FDO) jumper allows for the updating on the Intel Management Engine.

 

I have not found what the BB means YET.

Yep. 

 

Go use this forum's search function and find my post on that and the quote from a favorite HP engineer we miss quite a bit:

You'll see the words that BB stands for in this quote from Dan:  "If so, this is the E15 Boot Block recovery header.  There is a jumper on pins 2 and 3 (right hand side pins in this picture).  Moving the jumper from pins 2-3 (default) to 1-2 manufally forces the system into boot block recovery mode."

 

Don't mess with this unless you have done a lot of research.  There is more to it than that quote.
