I'm not sure how the POP/Admin password got set, but the recovery/hash reads System Disabled: i 55500662 Can an expert please generate this hash into a master password for me? Thank You so much! The notebook is a HP Stream model HP-14-cb112wm. Thanks again!

I think it took that password, but now its saying the selected boot device failed press <enter> to continue. Upon pressing enter it appears to go into a bootloop. Do you know how to stop this bootloop and get to the bios/uefi settings so I can reset the password and boot device options? This makes no sense right now at all!!

I definitely appreciate your quick solution. I was able to install Ubuntu 18.04 and now have a working laptop. I'm not sure what happened but it seemed like somehow the Secure Erase option had been used and someone had set the Admin/Power On Password. Guess I just got pranked or there is a serious bug in the UEFI firmware one! Eitherway I appreciate your help as it led me to resolving the issue!
