For that model you will need to contact HP in your region 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.

That fix worked. Started a chat session with HP and they emailed me a smc.bin file that i had to save to the HP_Tools drive instead of a external drive (our external drives are encrypted) and booted up as directed by them and it worked perfect. I did have to reset the bios to factory default in order to reset the password, which was not part of the directions. but that worked fine as well. Thanks
