How does one change the BIOS Admin Password on a Compute Stick?

Hi Cyphersteve,

 

 

The current compute sticks do not have the option to create a BIOS password. The sticks are sealed and there is no BIOS configuration jumper inside to reset the BIOS.

Saying it a different way, they are not letting you set a password because there is no way to reset this password if you forget it...

Mike C/N. Scott,

Should I assume the above is true for all Compute Sticks (including the VPro branded one)? Is there a mechanism for securing the BIOS against unauthorized changes (sine using a custom BIOS Pwd is not an option)?

Thanks,

-Steve

Good Question! if there isn't, this may be a security hole. Intel needs to answer this one. Mike?

(BTW, you only have to respond once; anyone who has replied previously (or tagged the conversation) will get a notice of your response being posted)

Hi All,

 

 

The vPro model comes with no BIOS configuration jumper. I have sent your case to my upper level. Please give 2 to 3 business days.

Hi All,

 

 

I have confirmed with our specialist the BIOS Admin Password option is not yet available in our compute sticks. We will take in consideration your comments for future models.
