I purchased a EliteBook 8460P at auction and was going to wipe it and do a clean Windows install. While trying to get into the BIOS to reset everything to defaults I am presented with a BIOS Administrator password prompt. How do I get rid of this and reset everything to factory default? The Product is XU057UT#ABA. Thank you in advance.
