I pulled the hard drive and it still gave me the password prompt. I'll disassemble and remove the CMOS battery next week when I get some free time.No, but that is an excellent idea. That should be easy enough since the hard drive is easily accessible. I'll give that a try this evening
Possibly, the DEBUG method described in the fourth link at [here].Many years ago i had a CF-28 that had a bios password, Removing the battery didn't work, I eventually found instructions on how to remove it using DEBUG, Luckily i could still boot from the floppy and it worked.
