    I've gotten a hand-me-down server that was used as a FireEye. The motherboard is a SuperMicro H8DGU-F-FIO 10. The issue I'm facing is that the BIOS has been locked down with a password. I've reached out to see if I can obtain the password, but in the meantime I've tried:

    1. Remove both power supplies.
    2. Remove CMOS battery
    3. Shorted JBT1 contact pads
    4. Installed the power supplies and restarted.

    The BIOS password is still present.

    Does anyone have any ideas?
