I have a Thinkpad T410i (Win7pro) with an unknown Bios Supervisor password. The only supported route out of this situation is a motherboard replacement . . . however . . . .
describes a procedure to extract the contents of the EEPROM via a IC2 bus arrangement to the serial port of another PC with an ATMEL chip reader installed. Unfortunately all instances of the chip reader that I can find are infected - this has been noted else where.
Does anyone have a suitable chip reader and compatible decoder so that I can extract the supervisor password from the eeprom file dump. Maybe you have an uninfected version of the software referenced in the above link.
I have prepped the T410i with the three wired connections and have built the interconnect, just need the reader and decoder to complete this task now.
Hope someone can help . . . very frustrating to have got this far.
