Resolve Windows 10 related issues for your HP computers or printers by HP Windows 10 Support Center
I'm using the HP BIOS Configuration Utility (BCU v. 188.8.131.52) to change BIOS configuration.
So I set up a new BIOS password with the HPQPswd tool.
Everything worked fine. Password is activated.
After that I tried to do some changes relating to the boot order.
But everytime, wether with a config file nor with the command "/setvalue:"Filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"filename.bin"", the following error message appears:
<ERROR msg="Signature error in password file: Password.bin" />
<ERROR msg="BCU return value" real="10" translated="10" />
So can someone help me with that?
Thanks for your response!
Go to Solution.
Can you try this command line to see if it works:
BiosConfigUtility.exe /setconfig:"Filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"filename.bin"
Filename.txt = repset file containing the settings and value.
Filename.bin = password bin file containing the encrypted password.
first, thanks for your answer!
I've also tried this, but I receive the same error message using this command line.
Any other idea?
According to the BCU user guide on the Manageability website http://hp.com/go/clientmanagement , the error return code = 10 that means "Valid password not provided".
I would suggest you to try the following:
1. Re create the password bin file
2. Provide the full path to the password bin file
BIOSConfigUtility.exe /setconfig:"filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"c:\myshare\password.bin"
password.bin is located in c:\myshare
after I recreated the password bin file everything worked fine!
Thanks for your help
