If the BIOS password of the Sandy Bridge platform is lost, you can upgrade the platform to Ivy Bridge to restore the password. If this method is used, the BMC version must be 5.88 or later (supporting hpm upgrade package). If the BIOS is rolled back so as to obtain the BIOS password. After the BIOS password is obtained, upgrade the BIOS.
