    to add info. use UEFITool to see the GBE region address and length of the backup.bin,
    in hexeditor it can be copied.

    Nobody share the SMC.bin,becouse no one have it... for shure, or are too greedy to do it. I have a prog to edit bin block's, if some one share the bin I can edit the file for each computer... try to shera a smc.bin for hp 840 g1 for testing propuses.
    thanks on advance,

    Hi Guys,

    My first post here, as after much reading and no success with so much time wasted..

    I have a HP Elitebook 840 G2 (SKU = G8R92AV) which has no bios pass but would like to mod S/N and UUID
    Is this possible without doing any external bios reprogramming?
    I'm quite happy to dump bios etc,

    I tried MPM unlock with SMC.bin (file bundled in 'NbDmifit') but getting SMC command failure, now I realize it is unique to each S/N UUID.

    Thanks

    Daz

    Just got answer from HP Support that they will not solve any password issues any more: "A forgotten BIOS password cannot be reset by HP. HP is committed to the security and privacy of our customers. To resolve a forgotten BIOS password issue, a system board replacement is required, and additional customer costs apply.".

    It is a pitty, because 3 months ago I had the same problem and they sent me an SMC file.

    Hi LatinMcG, thanks for your proposal, would be great if you can help. Is there a way to generate Bios backup by software, I don't have a programming card, and don't want to invest on it only for 1 computer.
    Thanks.
