Richard Maloley II suggested: >>Several options: >>1. Open the case and pull the CMOS battery. This will reset the BIOS to default, including blanking any passwords. >>2. Pull the hard drive and use an IDE -> USB toolkit to connect it to a laptop. Hi Richard, Excellent! I will give the 1st suggestion a try today! The 2nd suggestion sounds great too ... I'll keep that as a backup. (Actually, I'll try the first suggestion and if that doesn't work I'll probably pull the drive and go begging through the Engineering and Marketing departments as a 2nd option to see if I can get someone to load Windows or Ubuntu or Chrome on it for me.) Cheers, RonL.
