HP: Elitebok 820 G2 - BIOS is locked, Adminstrator password required

Elitebok 820 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi ,

i am trying to run old notebook but I noticed that is locked by BIOS, it is asking about BIOS Administrator password and after "system locked. press the power button to restart the system". I tried to create recovery media for BIOS and ran it with pressing "window" + "B" but I received only black screen and fan blow - without sucess. it's out of warranty and from second hand 😞

 

I read that I need SMC.bin file, but I cannot find it anywhere.
