    Hi,

    does anyone know a procedure to restore the BIOS password in the S-series?
    Some customers change the BIOS password from “Fireport” to an other passwort and forget them.

    Hi,

    the simplest way if they are deployed is to using PXE (Rapport or Simple Imager) push out a factory image – this will resel the BIOS. Then push out a new image with your setup,

    The BIOS password is stored in the same memory (serial EEPROM) as the MAC address, security key and the serial number.
    The stored data in this memory can’t modify by WDM or WSI.

    Hi,

    A WSI push inclides the BIOS and NIC EPROM data so it will overwrite it.If you do an ftp upgrade it will not.

    Have you tried it, maybe you had an issue?

    Hi,

    yesterday I tested with following conditions:
    WSI 1.1.5, WDM 4.5.1 Enterprise, FW WinCE 5.0 FR2 HF 10, S30 PN#903113-02L (RoHS).

    I changed the BIOS password from “Fireport” to “hello” and changed the boot order from PXE, USB IDE to PXE, IDE, NONE

    Firmware install with WSI and WDM (option: roll to boot) doesn’t set BIOS password and the boot order to default under the listed condition.

    Is it possible to list your conditions, how you set the BIOS password to default?

    Hi Again,

    I tested on an S90 by changing the BIOS password and then pushing a factory image and the password was re-set to Fireport

    I will need to test with CE and see what happens…

    Also Hi again,

    your information is correct. Pushing the firmware for S50 results the same effect. Only pushing S30 firmware doesn’t reset the BIOS password.

    Thanks for your help!
