Following up on my previous post, continuing on the Lenovo BIOS password topic. This time I’m illustrating, how you initially can set the supervisor password during the deployment of the operating system.

Last time I mentioned, how this cannot be done remotely for security reasons. However, there are an option to allow this during OSD (Operating System Deployment), called System Deployment Boot Mode. If taking advantage of this, you’re allowed to set the supervisor password programmatically in WinPE.
I’m using PowerShell to do so, and this post will walk you through the necessities.
