zBOOK G4, G5 and G6 BIOS Options

HP Recommended
HP ZBook 15 G2 Mobile Workstation (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I already own a HP zBOOK G2 and wish to purchase second hand later zBOOK series model.

 

On travelling to a store to inspect a "nice" zBOOK G5 15v - it turned out that I could not access the BIOS settings (needed Administrator Password, which the computer store could not supply for my test). With  my G2 laptop, I switch between Legacy, Hybrid and UEFI mode - to suit my needs. I could not determine if this option is available with the 15v model (because of the administrator password). The internet suggestion on how to change the administrator password could not be applied (the computer, I gather, was probably changed somehow in this respect).

 

So my question is for the G4, G5 and G6 - what are the BIOS options available, in particular regarding BOOT start order options and most importantly if Legacy, Hybrid and UEFI can be selected. For instance I need to be able to BOOT from a USB stick (in all three modes).

 

For me to inspect a G4 and G6 second hand laptop - I would have to travel hundreds of kilometers as no store in my area sell new or used zBOOKs (except the G5 as mentioned above).

 

I find it disappointing that this kind of information is not mentioned on any data sheet/manual by HP themselves - and also on printed form with the computer itself.
