What are the commands to update the BIOS when a password already exists?
We know what the password is, but we do not want to have a human go to the machine and manually enter the password.
Is there a way to have the hpqflash program enter the password silently or else use biosconfigutility to clear the password to blank, then run silent BIOS update and then reset the password back to our standardized password?
We are stuck with having to manually remove the BIOS password before we start reimaging a system so that the deployment doesn't get stuck at the "update BIOS" task step of the deployment and would like to solve this issue.
