Hello MDLers, I have got an HP EliteBook 840 G1 from my brother which he told me that he bought it from some body coming from france (I don't know if it is stolen or bought from an auction, but it seems new model). Its problem is the BIOS Admin password, & I have tried almost every thing that can clear the BIOS password (HP Probook - Elitebook BIOS Password Reset [Utility] by Mazzif, HP System Software Manager (SSM) BiosConfigUtility, SLP Marker File Update Utilities NbDmiFit-2.06), but with no success I know that it does exist one method that can clear the BIOS password, which is described as the following: quoted from NbDmiFit-2.06 README.txt But this method works only for the FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF UUID, and MPM is locked in my case, so I can't change the UUID to FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF value, and also HP support team will not provide me with the correct SMC.bin for this Notebook's UUID if I am not the owner. I also have tried the Crisis Recovery of the BIOS using the latest bios bin file in a FAT32 USB Key (The recovery procedure competed successfully, but the Bastards, they have made it to keep all the current info in the bios(UUID, SN, SKU, ...), the UUID has not been erased ) I have had an idea which consists of desoldering the EEPROM and program it via an EEPROM Programmer, which I already have, and solder that EEPROM back, so the UUID will be erased to FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF But I have seen two EEPROMs in the motherboard, and I don't know which one is the correct, I have attached some pictures of it, so you can see it. I don't know if this will work or not. Give me your opinion please. Thank you for your understanding.
