Default Re: HP DMI Tool NBDmiFit

HI everyone - im trying to change the model from a 840g3 - it was accidently changed to zbook g3 - I tried the 2.10-2.13 utility under windows. Nothing worked - tried different SMC.BIN files at the root always showing command unsuccesfully. Date from SMC msg is 00/00/0000 - 0043/255/255 - DOS doesnt work either - telling me to run the utility for Windows.
So I need to unlock the MPM - any clue, hints or workaround?
Any advice is much appreciated

I have replaced my motherboard and reprogrammed the UUID, serial (except the feature byte and build Id).
The problem is that during boot it says :
"Warning Machine is not in committed state"
When I open the DMI firmware tool it says MPM is not in unlocked mode and the "Commit only" button on the bottom is greyed out.
The other problem I have is I checked the Vpro status and it states it was set but it complained it was unsupported and my sticker says Vpro. I cannot reprogram it to supported because it says it was once already set.
Where can I find the feature byte and build Id how can I unlock MPM? I read SMC.bin has to be generated based on the UUID and the SN

Default Re: HP DMI Tool NBDmiFit

Is there a way to dump the bios in Windows or Linux on HP9480m? I tried under OSX with the flashrom but it came with some errors. I used the starting region found by the flashrom FF000000 and the end region as FFFFFFFFF in RWeverything. The dumped bios is 16,384KB but apparently it is not a good image. There are no passwords in the bios (except the default "admin" in the ME). Has anybody tried: chipsec_util.main(['spi', 'dump', 'rom.bin'])
using chipsec?
