    This password isn't stored on the hard drive m8, if that was the case another hard drive would sort it out, even CMos battery does not help in this case so it's the sequrity chip on the motherboard that store the password among other info and the only way to get that info is by dumpping the chip and read the dump, but my question is which chip and where about is it on the motherboard m8.
