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.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to help you, since HP will no longer supply the required SMC.bin file that is used to clear the BIOS password.
That was the only way it could be done.
HP issued this document recently...
Also the forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with removing passwords.
