HP Notebook PCs - May Be Unable to Unable to Enter F10 System Setup as BIOS Admin if HP ProtectTools is Enabled

If the BIOS administrator password is not set, and HP ProtectTools security is enabled in Security Manager, then you may not be able to enter the Computer Setup utility at startup as a BIOS administrator. You will only be allowed to enter the setup as a ProtectTools user with limited access.

1.Download and install the latest SSM utility

2.Navigate to c:\Program Files\Hewlett Packard\SSM . In Windows 64 bit, the correct path will be
c:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\SSM

3.Access biosconfigutility.exe to reset the BIOS administrator password.

a. From a command prompt, navigate to the SSM folder.
b. Type biosconfigutility.exe to start the utility. A list of commands displays.
c. Type /newsetuppassword:"password" to create a new BIOS administrator password. This will reset the BIOS
password to password
d. Close the command window.

4.Restart the notebook PC and press F10 at startup.

5.Log in using the new BIOS administrator password.

6.Choose User Management and delete any previous ProtectTools users.

7.Save the new settings and exit startup
