Can I upgrade to Windows 10 without a BIOS password?

Hi all,

I want to upgrade my computer to Windows 10 Pro, however I heard that in order to do that you need the bios passsword. Is this true? And if so can I update without the bios password? I do not know the password but still need to upgrade.

 

PC: Lenovo Yoga 12 ThinkPad

It is not a good idea.  Depending on what settings you have, you may need to change the boot order.  You may need to change UEFI vs. compatibility.  There may be other settings I cannot think of now.
