Reset or change BIOS admin password remotely

HP Compaq 8200 Elite MT PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I must change some bios settings and I know I can do it with HP BCU but the problem is that we have 400+ Desktops with diferent BIOS password setted and I can't use BCU to set this settings because password for every PC is required.

I read this post https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/Removing-and-Resetting-BIOS-password-for-BIOS-updat... but I can't find HPBIOSUPDREC64.exe file into BCU that do the job.

 

Can someone help me please?

Thank you very much!

Luca

Reset or change BIOS admin password remotely

as far as i know, you must enter the current bios password when using the BCU util, if you used diffrent passwords on all of your systems then you will need to visit the systems and reset the passwords to a common one, or if you know each systems password, do it on a case by case basis

 

does anyone know diffrent? is it possible to over ride the current password remotely without clearing the cmos?
