Forum Thread: Hacking a Targets BIOS?

Is there any way to get into someone's BIOS and change their settings? All of this is happening on the terms that you are only give virtual access, as well as Administrator rights to that computer. The computer I am trying to change BIOS settings on got Ubuntu, but I'd like to know how to change the settings even though it might have any other OS.

TMK, you do need physical access to the machine in order to modify the BIOS Settings, as it's just about the first thing to boot. No network drivers, nothing else. Nada.

I do not know of a way to circumvent this, sadly.

Indeed the bios is separate from the entire OS.

then how can you reset a bios password using windows tools ?
