Resetting BIOS Password

6570b
Linux

Thank you for reading my post.  I have an HP 6570b.  I forgot my BIOS password and need to reset it.  I called HP Support and asked if they could provide me with an smc.bin file.  I guess policies regarding BIOS password resets have changed.  They told me that they are not able to help me by providing an smc.bin file.  Is anyone out there in possession of this highly coveted file that helps with BIOS password resets?

 

I found the instructions on what to do with smc.bin when I get it.  Reo at one time had the file in his DropBox account, but that link is no longer working, and I believe he is no longer a part of this community.
