Re: Bios password or reset

Hi @werkstation



Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting.


Elitebook is a commerical/business class PC. Most business class notebooks (including yours Elitebook and Probook) have better/stronger security and they do not produce easy to crack hashes. BIOS password cannot be removed here in the forum - you will have to contact HP Business Support for assistance on removing the password.


Here is how:

Contact HP and ask for SMC.bin file. HP Business support should be able to send you a customised file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password. Note that assistance for such issues is usually free of charge for HP business class computers.



Hope this helps. Please, mark the post as a solution if it helped.
