Hi all

I have a HP Proliant DL360 G6 server running SBS 2008.

I need to change the boot order within the BIOS, but everythime I enter the BIOS I am prompted for a password.  I set the server up and dont remember it whatsoever.  I have tried everyone that  can think of but to no avail.

Any ideas how I can reset this info without losing information within the Operating System?

Cheers

you actually have to crack open the case and set a jumper to clear the password.

Cannot seem to find it on my motherboard, the picture looks a lot different to mine, mine being the G6 server may have a bearing??

then use this link for the cmos reset option

if that doesn't work, try pulling the battery (usually a silver disc about the size of a quarter) while the machine is unplugged from the wall.
