the AMT password can not be reset by clearing cmos it's stored in a diffrent way

 

if you set a AMT password, hope you wrote it down

 

because there is no known way to clear/reset unless you know the current password

no problem, i recomend that unless you actually need remote access capability that you reset the AMT to defaults,

(doing so will reset/clear the password back to the default one) and that you then disable AMT

 

note: please read up on AMT to make sure you are resetting the AMT back to factory settings, since as i said there is no known way to recover a unknown password

 

the intel AMT has known security risks, and is only usefull in a corporate domain setting.
