Password to get into Intel vPro Section of the BIOS

When I boot up computer and hit the Ctrl+P I get to Inte AMT pro section the machine is asking me for a password? Do I get that password from Intel or from Dell ? I'm not sure how to procede with this step going forward or is there somethin on the bios I have to turn-off or reset the password...

The default password is "admin" afther enter the password you'll need to type a new password.

I have, it doesn't let me do anything though except type in more passwords

basicaly I press ctrl+P then it goes into the vPro screen, once i've typed in admin it asks me to type in a new password.

once i type in that password it asks me to varify it. then after that I try and go into another area but it doesn't allow me, it

just asks again for my password

Are you using a strong password?

check out Gael's post - http://softwareblogs.intel.com/2007/11/08/strong-amt-me-passwords-and-other-shades-of-gray/

I assume it's not really changing the password, therefore not allowing you to go into the MEBx settings.

I've got somewhat of the same problem...

I can "log into" vPro but when it asks for a password everyone I give it is rejected

for example the last two passwords i tried to change to were

1;dB and 123:bbBB

I followed this 'tutorial'
