I was attempting to re-purpose an old DELL OptiPlex 745 as a Windows Home Server. When I went to install the WHS software I found that it needed to boot from the CD drive and a BIOS reconfiguration was needed. Upon entering the BIOS I encountered a locked setup. The password I had for it (from years ago) worked ONCE and every other time I get an INVALID PASSWORD response. Consequently I cannot get the device to boot from the CD drive. Any thoughts about resetting the BIOS password? Any utilities that I've downloaded are basically useless. I did pull the battery from the motherboard - this reset the time/date but did not wipe out the password in the BIOS.
