BIOS Administrator Password required

HP Elite 8560P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello HP team!,

I am trying to access into my notebook BIOS and asking me for a 'BIOS adminisrartor password'.

I have never gone through the BIOS before and have no crendentials

 

I have Windows 10 Home version

I am following forums on how to change the BIOS for my error below.

 

My original error from trying to run a newly installed Oracle VM Virtualbox is:

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

 

I am hoping the BIOS change is straight forward!  ... Thank you in advance for your Help!

The Elitebook is a business class machine and,unlike consumer class machines,will require help from HP Support to reset/clear the password. >Contact HP

Thank You CherylG...

I did follow your instructions thru to HP Support .

However my Notebook Serial has expired on its warranty.

So you can guess... no support! -  Unless I purchase a onetime support.

Is there another way around this BOIS password on this old Notebook?

 

Please ...

Thank you
