MEBx password unknown

I am trying to factory reset a STK2mv64CC that has MEBx configured with an unknown password.  I have tried using Intel SCS command line "Configurator" to reset it without luck.  Not being able to pull the CMOS battery or use a reset jumper leaves me at a loss.  Anyone have any ideas?

Hello SEsbj,


Thank you for joining the community


I think you can try the Power button menu. For instructions follow this URL: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/computestick/STK2m3W64CC_STK...


3.7.4 Power Button Menu

The Power Button Menu is accessible via the following sequence:

1. System is in S4/S5 (not G3)

2. User pushes the power button and holds it down for approximately 3 seconds

3. Release immediately

4. User releases the power button before the 4-second shutdown override

If this boot path is taken, the BIOS will use default settings, ignoring settings in VPD where

possible.

At the point where Setup Entry/Boot would be in the normal boot path, the BIOS will display the

following prompt and wait for a keystroke:

[ESC] Normal Boot

[3] Reset Intel® AMT/Standard Manageability to default factory settings

[4] Clear Trusted Platform Module (Warning: Data encryption with the TPM will no longer be

accessible if the TPM is cleared)

[F2] Intel BIOS

[F4] BIOS Recovery

[F7] Update BIOS

[F10] Enter Boot Menu


Let me know if this works
