HP Commercial PCs - Using BiosConfigUtility.exe (BCU) to Set a BIOS Administrator Password

Information

In a configuration where a BIOS User account has been established by the initial setup of HP ProtectTools, it may be necessary to gain administrative access to the BIOS afterward by establishing a BIOS Administrator account using BiosConfigUtility.exe.

Details

The details are listed below:
  1. Download the latest version of System Software Manager (SSM) from the HP Client Management Solutions website.
  2. Install SSM on any computer. It is not important to install SSM on the target computer or to configure SSM once installed.
  3. Download BiosConfigUtility.exe (BCU) from the Client Management Solutions - HP BIOS Configuration Utility (BCU) website. Copy it to the target notebook as applicable.
  4. Open a command prompt window with Run as Administrator option that is available by right-clicking on the command prompt icon before opening it.
  5. Navigate to the BCU location from the command prompt window.
  6. Execute the following command from within the command prompt window:
    biosconfigutility /nspwd:"pwd"
    (the quotes are required, replace pwd with desired password that meets complexity requirements established in the BIOS).
  7. BCU should respond, “Successfully Modified the Setup Password.”.
  8. Exit the command prompt window. Reboot, and press F10 to enter the BIOS.
  9. When prompted, select the BIOS Administrator account and enter the password chosen above.
  10. As the BIOS Administrator, passwords for other accounts can be reset or Reset BIOS Security to Defaults can be used to remove all accounts and security information in the TPM.
