Default Re: Panasonic Toughbook CF-C2 please remove bios password!

@Andreasbest
The default supervisor password may be found in other forum (have sent you a pm), the point is that most likely this laptop may be one like the ones used with diagnostic tools in service centers (VAGCOM VAS ODIS), on which it seems they set a default supervisor password on these. I was also checking other 2 Getac bioses, one from a B300G4 and a V110, at least one of these laptops has BOSCH on the bottom and both of these laptops have also a hard coded supervisor password in them, every time we try to reset them the supervisor password remains set after reboot.

What programmer are you using? The ACPI BIOS ERROR you get while trying to load an OS may be due to some of the bios modules being probably damaged (according to UEFITOOL which report invalid data checksums).

@AAAC As i suspected none of the passwords worked, was a Federal Government machine.
@smdflea the bios.zip is not working, asking for password right away.

Ladies and Gentleman we have a winner!
The bios2 works like a charm, supervisor password is clear, uefi works, usb boot devices unlocked and finally "restore defaults" doesn't restore any supervisor password!
Now tell me, WHERE THE HELL WAS HIDDEN???

Thank you very much mate!

p.s: i keep testing as there is no bios update for these machines to correct everything.
