Hello
I inherited the task of resetting 6 of these Wyse C90LEW to factory default. Now we don't have the embedded XP administrator password ( it was changed) and the BIOS password was also changed. I have downloaded and created a USB boot key from the Dell/wyse site for model. On boot I hold the P key and choose my USB key but the unit won't boot from it.

tried older image files with no success. What's the secret to resetting the units to default.

Thank you to you both
The administrator manual I initially downloaded for these devices gave me a different answer but must have been the wrong manual.
