Password change error

I have a Lenovo T61 with AMT support. I enabled AMT in the BIOS. I was able to press Ctrl-P and enter the Intel ME console using default console. But before changing any configuration it asks to change default password. However it rejects any password I enter with an ERROR. Any ideas?

Hello,
For starters, we need to make sure you are entering a strong password. I wrote a blog a while back that describes what is expected. You can read it HERE.

I hope this helps and if your question is answered, we would appreciate if you could mark that your question has been answered (on the top of your forum question.)

Thanks!

If anyone at Intel / Lenovo is reading this:

 

Ouch, you just failed human-centric UI 101.

If you have extreme password requirements, tell the user. Preferably when asking for the password and also when setting the password, but at the very least when setting the password.

You didn't tell me any of this on the screen, and it wouldn't have cost you to.

This makes my head spin that you leave this information out. Please get better!
