ok, I understand this. but that leads me to a problem with supporting appr. 1400 laptops all over europa. I can't just go everywhere and de-solder the chips. I recently installed Dell open manage client on one of my laptops (I did not install the server part yet). there are some dll files which are being used to edit, change, delete the passwords on the clients bios. I got to sneak into 2 dll files but well... same problem as usual... its chinese to me any idea on this?
