BIOS password locked - laptop from firm acquisition
Product: HP Probook 450 G2
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
The laptop was from an acquisition - the company / users do not remember setting a password. HP Business Support stated they no longer will reset passwords. I need to enable UEFI boot to re-image the laptop, but can not get into BIOS since a password is in place. Thoughts? I do not get a lock-out code when I try hitting <enter> three times like other posts are stating. Just a notice that I have to power off and back on since it's locked.
The forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with removing passwords. Rule 4.d...
d. No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to bypass or subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc., or to bypass any safety measures.
