    IBM Thinkpads + How to access supervisor BIOS

    Does anyone here know how to access the supervisor logon for the BIOS. This is differant from the normal user BIOS, and I'm dammed if I can find out how to get there.
    Its a Thinkpad T60 BTW.

    That accesses the user BIOS. Supervisor options are still greyed out.

    Ready for some tinkering ?

    Have you checked out:

    http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ib...bios-password/

    I sort of remember having to boot to a floppy on some older models a few years back to enable / disable some modem functions - so I am not sure if this is the case on the newer models ?
    I take it there is nothing regarding this in the thinkpad utils ?

    [ Its been a while since I used and serviced thinkpads - before they handed over the stuff to Lenovo ]
