Default DELL BIOS password generation utility - 03-25-2012, 01:32 AM

I ran across this article that includes a C program claiming to generate a Dell BIOS password from the service tag (and HDD serial number?) I have not tried it myself to see if it works.

Thanks! This looks like an excellent find, and can probably be used on other Dell machines too
