Yannow there are ways to bypass the bios password.

Have you tried the simpliest of all, just resetting the CMOS?

Of course I did, but as it is stated on official pages of IBM, BIOS password for that server can't be reset. If you forget it, you can only replace the MBO.

I can't find the link, but it's somewhere on IBM pages..

LMAO, that sucks big time. I had a customer that "forgot his password" on a new laptop bought of the street. I had no luck, pulled it all a part looking for jumpers, pulled the bat. and nothing. I also went through all of the "backdoor" factory passwords with no luck. I spent around 10 hours and didn't make any money. I will never work on a locked PC again. LOL
