    Hello!

    I’m bought several used WYSE S10 client and want make something like retro DOS games console. But can’t change boot order because BIOS have password. Default password “Fireport” is not working. May be someone know how possible reset BIOS password on WYSE S10. I can’t find any information about this.

    Thank you very much for any information!

    S10 is so old. I do not have one here for checking.
    Two things to look for
    – open the chassis and check whether there is a jumper on the board. This is often labeled with some hints on “BIOS”. This can be used to clear out the CMOS settings.
    – try an old version of the USB imaging tool. I am not sure if this works with S10.

    Have you tried to contact the seller?

    Thanks for your reply!

    The seller said that he did not know the password and did not know how to reset it.

    S10 don’t have any jumpers on the board and USB imaging tool don’t work with S10. I found information that the password is stored in the same microchip with the BIOS data. And to reset it, you need to reflash the BIOS again. But I could not find the file “RCA_boot” with the firmware, DELL no longer provides support for this old model. May be some one have this file for S10 model?

    RCA_boot is the firmware file.
    If I recall correctly the BIOS was named xpress.rom.
    I have uploaded 1.16 to the Downloads.

    Thank you!

    It really works! I flashed BIOS to version 1.16 and the password was reset to “Fireport” by default.

    Thank you very much!
