bios password for HP 675852-001 MS-7778

HP Recommended
p6-2427c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have the same issue as:

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/bios-password-for-HP-675852-001-MS-7778/m-p/57...

 

I followed the instructions 100%, also disconnected the coin cmos battery for 5 minutes at the time of disconnecting the powr. The bios said the settings? were reset and date/time were also reset. It still prompts for the password. I NEVER use BIOS passwords, definitely never setup one on this machine. All of a sudden this issue showed up. I think during a Win10 update, a new BIOS version got installed that caused this issue.

 

I found out I can "RUN UEFI app" and eventually specify the one-time device to boot, but that is messy.
