How to bring BIOS password back in HP Folio 1040G2?

HP Folio 1040G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. I made probably very stupid move. I wanted to clean BIOS Administrator password & changed it to empty. Now when I want to enter into BIOS, I am getting question if I want to log as a guest. If to choose NO- I can log, but as regular Windows user- without admin rights in BIOS. As I undrestood BIOS Admin account is not displayed, when password is empty. So how can I change admin password?

Thank you all for attention. Finally I managed to do it, using HP BIOS Utility. https://ftp.hp.com/pub/caps-softpaq/cmit/HP_BCU.html.

1. Create hasehed password file

2. Setup password based on instruction.

 

Firstly I was not able to managed it as password has policy requirements.
