Finding BIOS Password

Last week people from where I work there (YOU KNOW I don’t really work there, that’s where I have to go ’cause I’m Iranian boy, YES MILITARY services!!!!) came to all the offices and disabled USB’s and locked the BIOS’s with passwords, so we got xxx, I mean what do we have to do without USB????

Don’t worry, if I’m writing it in here means I’ve found the solution. I didn’t want to reset the password but I want to find it, so here it is http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/CmosPwd this will work on many BIOS’s including AWRAD Modular BIOS v6.00PG & v4.51PG the maker also claims that it will work with:

  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo – Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI

which is good, and better is that it work even under Windows Server 2008 and Vista (and he claimed DOS/Windows 9x and Windows NT/W2K/XP/2003) and I can assure you that it will work. The only thing you need to do under windows is to install and start the IOPREM service which is included in the pack and you may run this (I’ve found it in the help):

ioperm.exe -i
net start ioperm

and then

cmospwd_win.exe

and after that just to remove the application you might run

net stop ioperm
ioperm.exe -u

This worked very well for me, I hope this will do the same for you, just be aware that the USB can be disabled from many where including Windows Polices but in case you are sure that it is disabled from the BIOS, you might need this software.
