    You would need to replace VSS region with clean VSS or just unlock mpm. And after that, enter DMI in bios (SN, feature byte, mac address etc). This will get rid of endpoint error.

    SMDFlea Ah great thanks so much for the script. Will try it tomorrow. Will the change in the EC bin cause any issues with the security endpoint error? I ran into that issue and wasn't sure what to change in the Main bios to fix that.

    Just trying to understand how to use this tool. What is the .bin file. How to generate that .bin file
    you need a SPI programmer..here is a video as an example..

    Works with all with a 32MB EC. Its quicker using a hex editor though.

    SMDFlea in the thread it says 440 g8 will this script work for 450 G8 as well? And what about others 32MB models.

    Hi does anyone know the correct way to remove a bios password off of a HP with a 32MB ec chip? I have 20 ProBook 450 G8 laptops that need to be unlocked for a client. I have had success in the past using RCunlocker from rhetoricalcheese on 840 G6 and 840 G5 but the tool only works on 16MB ec chips not 32MB.

    I could ask someone to unlock a bin file for me but I need to do this over 20 times so I need to learn the method.

    I have a working unlocked MAIN + EC bin from another laptop if that helps

    I tried to flash those working bins to a unlocked laptop and used some tool to change the dmi info to match the serial but the laptop doesn't boot so I assume I can't do it that way. Please help!

    The charging LED being perm lit suggested to me that the bios isn't being read (faulty ic maybe)
    And so I've tried the one before once more with a new IC it worked fine. Thank you both for your help

    I split the main bios the lower part is the one containing the PW it's 16MB so now I can use your script on it
    Well the file I get in the output is the same as the original, I compare both they're identical
    any suggestion how to clean it SN#5CD3291R3D MB: DAX9SFMB8A1 REV:A
    first boot press f10 reset bios to factory defaults and exit, 2nd boot reset security settings to daults and exit.
    you can disable permanently the absolute lock in BCU tool.
    here's your DMI info. use bcu:

    Serial Number: 5CD3291R3D
    Product Number: 6J5H9AV
    CT Number: PREBK068JIB04V
    Description: HP EliteBook 645 14 inch G9
    build_id: 22WWTPCZ601#SABF#DABF
    Feature Byte: 476J6S6b7B7H7M7Q7W7m7saBaEapaqauawbhcAfPguhKhkjhk8mEn7nWpDpFpnpqprqjqz.Hg

    Or use this HP BCU TOOL ( BIOS Configuration Utility) to fill the DMI info
    The laptop is not booting anymore only charging LED is permanently lit
    what tool did you use? RCUnocker? IDK why it didn't work for me I'm confused

    Yes I already tried a full power drain to try to recover the bios but no luck. Would you happen to know how I can get a clean bios for 840 G5 with MPM unlocked?

    Hi I am running into a problem with a HP 840 G5 that won't boot after using the tool. I have used the tool multiple times successfully before but for some reason this time it isn't. Heres the steps I did.

    - I desoldered the 16MB chip on the back of the motherboard and programmed it with RCUnlocker then soldered it back on
    - I attempted to boot the device and the speakers beeped at me and then I remembered I forgot to put the RAM back
    -I put the ram back in and then booted the laptop succesfully I tried to get to the bios to reset security settings but wasn't able to.
    - The bios said "completing last step of the bios update do not power off" after that finished the embedded controller security error showed up
    - The laptop then powered off and now it won't boot again. The caps lock blinks 5 times and the laptop won't power on anymore.

    I tried removing the 16MB chip and programming it again and soldering it back on again but now the caps lock is just a solid light, no blinking and the laptop does not turn on. I tried unplugging the cmos and draining the power but it did not do anything.

    Did the main bios chip get corrupt? I don't have a backup of the 32MB chip only the 16MB.

    Unlocking
    HP - ProBook, EliteBook, ZBook (including 32MB models)
    Chromebooks from all various manufacturers
    Apple - everything older than T2
    More to come...

    Information display (helps to verify file integrity)
    HP - ProBook, EliteBook, ZBook (up to 16MB models for now)

    Custom logo removal
    HP - ProBook, EliteBook, ZBook (up to 16MB models for now)

    Usage: Drag and drop .bin file to .exe file.

    In case there are problems with unlocking your laptop, write a short description of the issue, upload original file and if possible, _unlocked.bin file aswell. Just crying for help is useless. Keep the topic as clean as possible.

    You may ask for feature requests, I'll see what I can do.
    TESTED TO UNLOCK BIOS ELITEBOOK 840 G7 THANK YOU VERY MUCH
