Do you know the password?

If so, then you can use Victoria for Windows to setup and answer a password challenge.

If the password was set via BIOS, then be aware that it will be encoded using keyboard scan codes rather than ASCII characters.

For example, the ASCII values (in hexadecimal) of the characters in "PASSWORD" are ...

50 41 53 53 57 4F 52 44

However, the corresponding scan codes on a US keyboard are ...

19 1E 1F 1F 11 18 13 20
