Thank you! Id like to try this. But, I have 2 quick questions:

1. Since I cant get pass the password prompt; Can I load the !BIOS on a thumb drive from mine, insert in his & reboot/ will his PC respond & run it?

2. I can't capture a view of his bios info., ref., that Ill need in the instruction. Ive tried every button & F# function at reboot & it just goes straight to the password prompt; since I have this other laptop, same model as his, can I input the bios info captured from mine? And, If question 1 is a yes, this question no I can't, will this step during the process keep me from proceeding without knowing the correct info.,?

Thank you again! Really! Thank you!
