6530b factory reset/bios admin password

Product Name: 6530b
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP

so, i have a 6530B that i got from a relative, and i must say, it is extremly difficult to work with...

 

I want to do a factory restore, and to do so i need to get through the bios admin password.

 

I cant even boot from a USB to do a fresh install...

 

Would it be easier to have HP support help me with the bios password, or should i just put in a new HD and do a fresh install, using another pc as a surrogate for the install(cant get past bios on tis one)?

 

from what ive read spending the day trying to find a way around the password, that there really is no workaround... Kind of obnoxious... but its a business machine so makes sense...
