I was setting up a Getac laptop (I've done this before with no issues, same brand and version, Windows 10). I set up the supervisor password to prevent the maintenance guys from getting into the UEFI. For the FIRST time in half a dozen setups, it asked for the password before restarting, then again AFTER restarting, and now the thing won't go away. I've reset the password, I've wiped it out - the machine insists on the supervisor password on EVERY BOOT. It's turned it into a boot password even though, in UEFI, the boot password functionality is disabled. I'm at a loss. The point of the password is to keep the maintainers out of the UEFI. But if you can't even turn the machine on and use it without knowing the password - it's the same as not having a password at all, because everyone knows it. I restored the machine to its out-of-the-box state and it STILL insists on that password before it will boot. I'm hopeful someone's seen this; otherwise the machine goes into the trash.
