Forgot password bios

Hi,

 

Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case.

 

If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

You're welcome

 

There's no direct download as the file needs to be customised for you particular machine - this is done by HP who will then email the smc to you along with instructions on how to use it.
