Sizes over 700MB may require overburning to be put onto a CD, or be a Live DVD ISO.Many Live CDs can also be copied onto and booted from USB drives.If you can MODIFY the BIOS to boot from USB, CD or DVD. Even "locking" the BIOS is no longer safe as "Flash" programs can 'reprogram' most any BIOS.Shorts or restes can 'fry' and many sites offer replacements/swaps. File systems are the way data is encoded on the hard drive.
(see instructables for ISo images or USB thumb drive)Windows Computers are designed to not allow remote access.
Once the BIOS (bypass BIOS passwords on page 6) is set to boot from other media (USB/CD/DVD) you can load you OWN OS and login. Load a small Linux or other OS, fast and easy from USB or CD/DVD (see Live CD or use my instructables) ///post your ideas///! Specific PXE or GRUB boots and small USB drives can boot most any OS you choose.
Free ISO Image Downloads: These are the ISO boot disk images available from All Boot Disks.
Depending on your mainboard layout you'll see a seperate battery or won't see it as it will be integrated in a multifunction chip housing battery, real time clock (RTC) and other components (usually a small black brick on the mainboard).
Keeping that in mind different ways of removing the password are possible.
