I have no BIOS passwd but want to Update BIOS

I have a HP Elitebook 840 G1 bought from a company when it was 4 years old. And now I want to upgrade BIOS (2014 original). I have no BIOS-password to the machine.

Is it possible and if so, can anyone help me with the procedure.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to help you, since HP will no longer supply the required SMC.bin file that is used to clear the BIOS password.

That was the only way it could be done.

HP issued this document recently...

Also the forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with removing passwords.
