    BIOS password recovery

    I have an HP Elitebook 850 g1.

    I need to recover the BIOS admin password.

    I have installed cmospwd_5.0+dfsg-2build1_amd64.deb

    Can anyone help with the commands for using this utility?

    Or, are there any alternative methods (I have attempted all Google searches solutions without success).

    Thank you.

    Re: BIOS password recovery

    Thread closed, as cmospwd is a password cracking program.

    From the Forums Code of Conduct:

    Cracking: Requests for help about any form of password or encryption "cracking" are not supported. Even though there are packages such as aircrack in the repositories, discussions about cracking or software related to cracking often lead to discussions about illegal activities. Such threads will be closed.
