    Any information about BIOS password for DQ77MK boards?


      I am assigned the task of changing the BIOS password of a DQ77MK board from Windows. Is there anyway to achieve that? I will also appreciate any information about where the password is stored (CMOS, TPM, NVRAM, EEPROM?), what hashing algorithm is used, and whether it can be read or altered after the BIOS firmware loads the operating system. If it's not possible, can someone explain why, or hopefully link me to an official document by Intel?


      If this is any relevant, the BIOS/UEFI firmware vendor is also Intel.


      I appreciate all relevant information, even if it doesn't completely solve my problem, which is again, changing the BIOS password for the said motherboard from Windows. Suggested solutions that involve programming are also welcome.
