Have got a HP Omnibook 500 where there has unfortunately been enabled/set a BIOS password that nobody seem to remember. I guess I will have to flash the BIOS back to factory default to get rid of this password.
How do i do this ?

The problem is that the computer won't detect the hard drive correctly and therefore reports "No operating system found". I've tried booting up using a floppy, then checked the partion table with the fdisk utility: "No partitions found".
I then created a new partition, rebooted the computer, and the partition I just created was long gone.
So my question would be: Is there an alternative way to flash/reset the bios on these computers ?
