Reset Thinkpad Edge 0578K5A BIOS Password

2018-01-22, 23:42 PM

Does anyone know how to reset the BIOS password (PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.1) on the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 0578K5A? I had set one and had forgotten it know.

Good day and welcome to the community.

The only way to remove/reset a (presumably) BIOS supervisor password is to know it. There are no workarounds or backdoors. Absent knowing the password, the only option is to replace the system board.

 

Sorry for the unpleasant news.

Regards.
