Thanks, I tried to flash the new image using FPWT64 but I'm getting this error:

"Error 167: Protected range registers are currently set by bios, preventing flash access"

I don't have a programmer and the machine is thousands of miles away. I'm trying to help a friend. Does anyone know of a way around this?

No, you need either programmer and soic8 clip or SMC.bin file from HP (but they don't give them anymore).

Third way is to figure out the password. Some information is in this topic: https://badcaps.net/forum/showthread...&highlight=840

I found a post on another site with a similar error #. They were able to boot to an EFI shell and run a command that toggled the BIOS lock bit. The address was found by using UEFITool but in the setup module but I can't find such a module in this BIOS.

Here is the post:
