I bought this laptop from a used-laptop store and I only bought it because the BIOS where accessible and ready to use. I set virtualization to on and everything was great, even before I left the store. I also have a friend who loves his Lenovo T430. I told him about the problem and he said to just give Lenovo a call and they will know what to do. Of course there is no phone number I could find except sales, so I am hoping I can find a fix here.
A little while ago I updated my T430 to BIOS Revision 2.7, and without my knowledge, in the process the update set a new BIOS Supervisor Password and it decided to disable virtualization extensions.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

A BIOS update cannot create a BIOS password. There is no backdoor password and no way to reset.

Thank you for calling me a liar.
So how else was it set? Magic? Someone broke into my apartment to set a Supervisor password? Immediately after the BIOS update?

I didn't call you a liar. I am assuming you could get into the BIOS in read-only mode. (hit enter at password prompt)

There is no default password
