Solved!

HP ProBook 6560b BIOS password reset

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 6560b
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi!

 

I've got an HP 6560b that I need help resetting the BIOS password on. Clearing the CMOS doesn't work since the password apparently is stored in the TPM chip, and you need a special file to reflash it. Could anyone please help me with that?

I'll of course give out the S/N and UUID on request.

 

Thanks in advance!

@PentiumMMX

 

Contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.

 

Or download these files.

Insert clean USB flash drive.

 

Then run USB Image tool.

 

Choose the flash drive then click on RESTORE.

 

After restore remove flash drive.

 

Insert flash drive into locked laptop and boot. ”If HDD is installed remove before booting.”

 

At C:\OUTPUT   type CD.. “Then hit enter”

 

Type HPBR   “Then hit enter”

 

First thing is to save your settings.

 

Select #3 re-program.

 

Press “S” to save system information.

 

Type HPBR and hit enter.

 

Since your model is not listed select “SHOTGUN.”

 

After reboot repeat “SHOTGUN” a second time.

 

If you cannot boot from USB flash drive use the Image tool to build a HDD.

 

Then use the drive to boot the program on the locked laptop.

How did you doing that? I tried for a several time, but it still locked.
