  • Re: BIOS Update with password

    The whitepaper for enabling TPMs with CCTK's 2.0+ SCE feature goes over setting/specifying BIOS passwords so that should help you.

  • RE: Dell BIOS Updates issues

    Unfortunately older BIOS updates don't have a /p argument to supply the password. I've had to use CCTK to clear the password, apply the BIOS update and reboot, and then set the password back. You can also check if the update applied successfuly by using the --completioncode command in CCTK.
