HP SSM Updating BIOS - on reboot, still asks for the Bios I doing something wrong?

Elitebooks G2, G3 and G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi  Folks,


I've just gotten started with HP SSM to handle Laptop Bios Updates on some Elitebooks on my network. Updating Drivers is working Great...But having an issue with BIOS.


I created the Password recovery file using SSM and entered it into SSM ok.


I run SSM on the client, it shows Bios Upgrade needed, unpacks and reboots....


Then asks me for the Bios Password.


Kinda defeats the purpose 🙂


This s the command I use: "\\BMINTF\Images\HP SSM\Softpaqs\ssm.exe" "\\BMINTF\Images\HP SSM\Softpaqs" /cpwdfile:"ssm.bin" /ti:”HP Driver Update”


If it's supposed to work...I need help. If it's NOT supposed to work that way...Oh.

Thanks in advance for any help.
