I do not have admin. or windows password for a Dell Latitude E5430.  I downloaded a program to a DVD (from a different computer) to reset/unlock passwords.  I go to the BIOS menu on the Dell and attempt to change the boot sequence to put the DVD Drive first, but I cannot because the function is grayed out and locked.  It asks for the admin. pswd. to unlock the BIOS menu!  Of course, I do not have that password and that's the whole reason I need the DVD to run on the Dell!


How can I change the boot sequence on the Dell to boot up from a DVD...without the admin. password??


please help.  Thank you.
