How to remove default UEFI password?

Q: How to remove default UEFI password?

Hi, I need an urgent help with my computer. I own a HP 255 G3, it has a password set for UEFI by default. I would want to unlock it, so that I could turn off secure boot and install Windows 7. The computer had Windows 8.1 installed from the very beginning. What should I do?

Preferred Solution: How to remove default UEFI password?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to remove default UEFI password?

> I own a [notebook] HP 255 G3, it has a password set for UEFI by default. It is unusual to have a "default" BIOS/UEFI password.Did you buy it "new", or "refurbished", or privately, or was the initial setup done by the computer store that sold it to you? Given that notebook computers, such as yours, can be stolen, they are designed to NOT make it easy to delete that password. > I would want to unlock it, so that I could turn off secure boot and install Windows 7.> The computer had Windows 8.1 installed from the very beginning. According to HP's web-site, this notebook computer has "downgrade rights" to install Windows 7.Did it come with a Windows 7 Installation DVD, plus a 25-character product-key for Windows 7?It's no longer possible to purchase Windows 7, except through sites like eBay, or from a small computer-store that still has "new old stock" gathering dust on their display shelf. The larger question is why you would want to downgrade to Windows 7, since Microsoft will stop issuing security-updates for Windows 7 in three years (January 2020). At that time, you'll have to reinstall the orginal Windows 8, or to pay to license a copy of the 2020-version of Windows 10, to protect your computer from malware. If you want the Windows 7 "start-menu" add-in for Windows 8, see: http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/priced at $4.99 US per license.

Hi,

After resetting UEFI to default values, I can't start WIndows because boot goes to UEFI.

The story is this:

I wanted to make a clean install of W10 and for that I had to make some changes in UEFI because it wouldn't allow me otherwise. But after the installation I see that I have some problems with the sleep and fast boot, not working well. So I went to UEFI and reset it to default, saved and exit. On boot, it goes to UEFI once and again. Windows doesn't load.

So I have to do the same changes that I had to do for installing W10. Disable fast boot, etc. And then yes, I get to Windows, but keep having the same sleep and boot problems. Both work really bad in different ways.

Does anybody know what is wrong?

PS: I also did other changes, by the way. I couldn't install W10 because it said that my disk was GPT partition style, so I had to follow some instructions to change that, which wiped my disk and partitions completely and maybe I missed some step...

Thanks in advance.

Please post a screenshot of disk management. Also, make sure your boot option is listed as Windows Boot Manager if you are installed in UEFI mode (which the screenshot above will show).

Hi - I've just got a Samsung 850 Pro and will be installing Win 8.1 Pro on it.

I'd like to use the hardware encryption on the SSD drive but now I've looked into it I'm not sure if/how I can.
Motherboard is a few years old now (ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO), and I can't see a HDD in BIOS (just supervisor and user), and don't think it is UEFI compatible either, or TPM compatible!
Samsung suggested bitlocker but I assume the lack of UEFI means bitlocker is no good for me - or would it mean the encryption would be software (which I'm not keen on as it will affect performance)?
Basically, is there anyway I could get hardware encryption working with a fresh install of Win 8.1
Thanks.

A:SSD hardware encryption, but no UEFI, TPM or HDD password?

you can protect the SSD by setting a password in bios.. What a PITA to use, Bitlocker is software driven in Pro editions.. Another PITA..

Yes, you can reset your ASUS Bios or UEFI password if you forgot it. (works on UEFI based laptops at least... don't know if it will work on everything)

This only works if you can boot into windows (or other OS) ! It will reset you BIOS or UEFI password if you have forgotten it.

- Boot into windows and change the date to 2002/01/02,

- Reboot while while hitting F2 to get into the BIOS / UEFI, when the enter password window appears hit "Alt + r", a "Enter rescue password" window will appear, with 2002/01/02 date showing (if not the code won't work), enter the following rescue password : ALAA4ABA

- Done ! You're in the BIOS / UEFI

- Change back the date and other settings to their correct values in the BIOS / UEFI, save settings, and you're good.

HP Support Assistant keeps wanting me to upgrade my system's BIOS.  I purchased this "Display Model" machine several years ago from Ebay.  Early on I discovered that I did not have the BIOS password.  I saw references on your support forums indicating there was software to bypass or reset the BIOS password,  but since my machine was working to my satisfaction, I did not pursue this issue further. Since HP Support Assistant keeps insisting on an upgrade, I suspect I should stop ignoring the issue.  Can someone help me access my BIOS for the upgrade? Thanks, Kevin Fowler

My husband found a Dell desktop left behind in one of the rental properties his company manages and brought it home. It works just fine, the only problem is that you have to enter the administrator password to do pretty much anything. There is a guest user that I can log onto without a password and get on the internet, but I can't save any files or download any programs without the password. Is there a way I can remove this password lock, without knowing the password or logging onto the admin user, or would I have to completely wipe Windows and reinstall it?

A:How to remove administrator password, without knowing the password?

Offline Registry Editor
 
Enable the Hidden Adminstrator Account and then use it to reset the standard Administrator Account. Follow this guide. Here is a video. You don't want to reset your admin accounts password using the Offline Registry Editor if by chance the file system is encrypted.
 
DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
If password is reset on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or newer, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again If you don't know if you have encrypted files or not, you most likely don't have them.

I've created a password for the guest account. Now I can neither change nor remove it.

Logging on as admin I can't find a setting to change or remove guest account's password.

Logging on as guest I am getting the "windows cannot change password" warning if I try to change or remove it.

On guest account using ctrl+alt+del>"change password", now I get a "access is denied" warning.

Any kind of help would be appreciated. Thanks.

PS: The whole issue has started with me seeing a warning on Bitdefender's Vulnerability module telling that the guest account has no password. I clicked on it and created a password for my guest account from within BD. That doesn't necessarily have to be related with the problem, just FYI.

Hello All,
   I need to remove user passwords. Yes I have removed Admin password. I have used Trinity, Hiren's boot disk, UBCD and other linux and password removal programs. I want to remove the user passwords from the login. I have done the safe mode startup and disabled the EUFI. I cannot login to the admin or safe mode unless i enter the user password. Which is what I am trying to remove. I have watched videos and read tutorials and all of them tell me to login and then change the password. Is there any possible way to remove this? I am talking about the main user login that has the user name with the email under it. Is there a way to remove them from pulling the hard drive and accessing it through usb as an external drive. I have been through multiple forums and all with the same thing. They all tell me to login and then change the safe mode or user settings. I want to remove the user password without loging in. PLEASE do not send me a site that shows me how to remove password after loging in or login and change the start up or settings. I already know how to do those things. Like I said I already removed admin password, but I cannot login or it does not show that user as a choice to login. Yes I am very frustrated with this. I think I am going to quit my job and quit working on computers if this is what Is installed for the future.   <<<<this is how I feel. DUMB!!

I recently purchased a toshiba portege with win 2k installed. Everything was fine untill I changed the machine from a domain to a workgroup. NOw the old password no longer works. At this point I'm locked out of the machine (no option to go back to the domain) I decided to just go ahead and install XP on the machine, but since the cd drive is a PCMCIA type, a regular dos boot disk does not work. Just as a matter of simplification, is there a default password I could use to get back into the system? sure would make my life a bit easier. Thanks in advance

A:default password

There's no such thing as a default Windows password. There are common passwords, such as password or admin for instance, but nothing that will definitely work.

You may be in for a world of pain with that PCMCIA CD drive. I had a Thinkpad 560Z with one, and getting a DOS boot disk to work for it was a week's work. That won't help you much with XP anyway as installing from DOS isn't straightforward.

My advice would be (when you get the drive working in DOS) to repartition the hard drive with a secondary small partition. Copy the entire i386 directory into it, then install XP from the hard drive. There will be all sorts of problems during the PnP part of the installation otherwise.

**** You need to enable Legacy MBR by Enabling Launch CSM in the EFI Setup ****

Hello all,

This is my first post. I am a Windows 7 user and now (against my will) Windows 8.

I bought an ASUS N76 laptop pre-loaded with Windows 8 so these are the new generation n76 series. The old ones come with Windows 7. Anyway...

I attempted to boot a Windows 7 ULT 64 install DVD but the install hangs on the Windows logo/flag. So...

- Windows is loading files is shown and hidden
- The animated Windows logo appears and then it just hangs....go figure

I have no idea what is going wrong. I went into the UEFI setup and the only option for my BR is EUFI boot.

I also added a "boot option" asking the EFI to boot "efi\microsoft\boot\boot.efi" or "\efi\microsoft\boot\boot.efi" but when selected (from Boot Override), the screen goes blank for a few seconds, the BR starts spinning and I am thrown back at the EFI so it looks like it cannot find the file. For path, I selected the BR device and at the end has a "\".

I have secure boot disabled. (yep, I have an option for that). So now I am left empty handed and I am stuck with Windows 8. I even put in a brand new SSD hoping I would install W7 on it but I can't even start the setup!! Argh....

I am very experienced with MBR and BIOS but I am a complete newbie to UEFI. I don't know what is going wrong and why the setup hangs....Ther... Read more

2. Update to latest BIOS.

The short answer to the headline?s question is that a UEFI scanner is all about helping you protect your computer against people who seek to take it over by abusing its Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). A successful attack on a system?s UEFI can give the attacker complete control of that system, including persistence: the ability to secretly maintain unauthorized access to the machine despite rebooting and/or reformatting of the hard drive.

As you can imagine, this form of persistence is not a virtue and can prolong the pain and inconvenience of a malicious code infection. If your security software only scan drives and memory, without scanning UEFI, it is possible to think you have a clean machine when you don?t, that?s why we recommend a security solution that scans it, like ESET.

Why does my device have a UEFI?

Computing devices work by executing code: the instructions that we call software and which make the hardware ? such as a laptop or smartphone ? do something useful. Code can be fed to the device in several ways. For example, it can be read from storage on a disk, held in memory, or delivered via a network connection. But when you power on a digital device it has to start somewhere (bootstrap), and that first piece of code is typically stored in a chip on the device. This code, referred to as firmware, may include a ?power-on self-test? or POST to make sure things are working correctly, followed by the loading into memory of the basic in... Read more

Trying to understand handshaking between UEFI & Win 7. Have Win7 Pro sp1 64 installed on SSD, mb=Asus F2A85-V Pro. Example: boot to flashdrive to do Acronis backup of SSD; remove SDD, insert spinner; boot again to flashdrive to do Acronis restore to spinner (to test backup); remove flashdrive, boot to UEFI, set UEFI spinner as default, save & reset; spinner starts boot (#1), Win logo shows briefly, reboots (#2) and shows Win repair/normal screen; choose normal; Windows desktop shows; new driver is loaded for spinner and asks for reboot (that part I understand); reboot (#3) starts and again briefly shows Win logo before yet again rebooting (#4) to the Win repair/normal screen; again choose normal & all is happy. But then I remove the spinner, insert the SSD, and have to go through the whole deal again. Why so many reboots?

Similarly, if I change any hd/flashdrive configuration, my UEFI boot selection is lost & I have to reset it again - sometimes with the multiple reboot scenerio, sometimes not. Sure wish I could force that the UEFI selection stay there as long as the selected drive is installed.

Hello and welcome diana look I am having a little difficulty in following the train of the thread.

Now do you mean you just backed up the SSD to a USB stick ? then tried to transfer that USB stick back up to the spinner? If it was just a back up then I don't think it is going to work because it is only a backup.

To make the spinner the boot device I would be cloning the SSD to the spinner. I wouldn't mucking around with sticks as I cannot see why that is necessary.

When it wakes on lan it is trying to boot from the legacy device (same blank screen happens if you choose to boot from it from bios)

ive tried updating the bios but no luck, all settings seem to be as they should be.

Is there some trick to get it to load the UEFI MBR, or is there a safe way other then reformatting the machine to move the MBR over to the legacy device itself?


Thanks for any help.

A:Boot UEFI from wake on lan, or convert UEFI MBR to legacy.

Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk: remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CONVERT MBR
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

I am not sure if this subforum is the right place, if not, pleases help me transfer to the right forum...

I recently just build a new setup with Asus P8Z77-V LK, this motherboard comes with UEFI boot and legacy BIOS boot support.

So I tested install windows 7 in both mode, and I didn't find any advantage of UEFI consider it is a new technology been promoted quite a lot for recent years.

The benefit I found is: a graphic BIOS setup, which is useless to most users if you don't OC. Even you did, I still find using keyboard to navigate through the menu is much easier than mouse.

Faster boot time? very negligible, could be 31 seconds compare to 28 seconds. As I timed use my stopwatch, the value could include a few seconds human error as well.

Support boot from > 2.2TB HDD? nowadays most user use SSD as boot drive so this really doesn't matter.

GPT disk partition? don't see any benefit here compare to legacy MBR...

Anyone can enlighten me what is the advantage of UEFI here?

Thanks a lot!

A:What's the benefit of UEFI and install Windows in UEFI mode?

Thanks for adding information about EFI BIOS which present a problem for many during installation and repairs.

For this reason alone, I would advise disabling EFI BIOS in BIOS boot order or choosing Legacy BIOS in BIOS setup, installing normally to an MBR disk.

Wiping a HD already formatted as GPT disk with Diskpart Clean Command can clear the way for it to install as MBR. Sometimes it also takes runnning the command "Convert MBR" to change disk from GPT.

A few months ago I purchased a new Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Small Form Factor desktop computer. It has Windows 7 Professional preinstalled.  I am thinking of updating to Windows 10. My M73 has a regular BIOS.  Can it be changed to UEFI, and would there be an advantage in doing so?Also, I am planning to install an SSD and move the OS to the SSD and use the HDD for extra storage. I think this would be a significant improvement to the system speed and faster boot up.  I have done it on older desktops I own.Thank you in advance to anyone with good advice.

A:M73 ThinkCentre: Can BIOS be changed to UEFI, and is there an advantage to UEFI?

M73 SFF (&Tower) does have a UEFI setting, it is not the default (compatibility mode).   I changed it to UEFI to boot a MemTest86 CD to run the latest v6 tests:  What's New in MemTest86 for the UEFI platform (Version 5 and later)?

Hello to the forum. Thanks for the welcome. And thanks for pointing me in this subforum.

I have a notebook toshiba satellite L850-1HU with UEFI

Default is win 8 os, recently upgraded to 8.1.

Now I need to win 7.

I have a professional license N sp1 x64 and then supports UEFI

Is possible to combine the systems in dual boot and both in UEFI mode?

I see from your guides that for installation the UEFI is necessary partition in a certain way.
What should I do if I want to leave intact the UEFI partition of win 8 (5 partition)? I just make only space for win7(1 partition) that will use the same 4 partition UEFI of win 8 or i make other 5 partition???
And which of the two systems will handle the boot? I can decide I?

and the warranty? restores factory work?

If I change hdd, and install win 7, when I put the old hdd, it works as before removing it?

Sorry for the confusion! I hope you manage to understand me and help!

Ciao forum! E grazie! Saluti dall'Italia!

A:Satellite L850 & Win 8 UEFi: How dual boot UEFI win 7 ?

If I change hdd, and install win 7, when I put the old hdd, it works as before removing it?



Yes. This is how I do any OS tests\'dual boot'\experiments etc with zero chance of damage to the original boot OS\hd. Am keeping a bunch of old HD's for the purpose. The downside is the slight risk for some mechanic\connection problems, just be careful, remember to power down! So if you don't find it troublesome to switch HD's, IMO go ahead and try that route.

Hi guys,Just got an Aspire ES1-523. Was setting up for dual boot of Win10 and Linux Mint 18. Shrunk Win 10 partition from within windows to make room for Linux partitions. Got system to boot from UEFI USB and used gparted from Linux Mint Live to make and format new partitions, then installed Mint using new partitions for"/" and "swap".All seemed fine until reboot... Now boots to UEFI setup and exit from UEFI setup goes to boot and boots UEFI setup. I'm locked in a bit of a loop...How can I get the boot loader to point to Win 10 boot manager or grub2 boot manager instead of UEFI (bios) setup???

Hello:

I cant get for some reason my default gateway username/password.
I've tryed reseting the router and i've tryed Admin/admin, blank/admin, admin/blank,
and both username and password blank.

I realy need to know how to get my username and password for the default gateway.
I would realy apreciate some help.
Sorry for bad english
Thanks.

A:Cant get my default gateway username/password

Open the comand promt as administrator (right click run as administrator).

Type ipconfig

That will show you your gateway.

If you have been trying to log into your router you seem to already know your gateway.

It's usually 192.168.1.1
